Thanks Tamara for that powerful lesson! This quote is one of my favorites and is at the end of my email:
"In the adversity we dread facing, we find a life of which we've only dreamed." Jennifer Rothschild
No one likes facing difficult times, but this quote reminds us that there is a light on the other side. Adversity provides growth. Growth opens our hearts and lives to a new lens to see through. It changes us and takes us to the next level. As I sit in my office and listen to people pour out their hearts and pain, I always ask what are you learning from this and about yourself. The power of going THROUGH the pain is that we become transformed and free from it's grips. I hope each of you is able to see that your pain today will open up doors for you. You just have to be willing to open them!
