Here comes the sun !! So happy to be back in the mountains! Even at 25 degrees it warms my heart ! It’s been a very trying and painful 6 weeks ! Pain in loosing friends ! Joy of strengthening bonds with real ones ! I’ve come to see that pain is not something to be eliminated so that we can have joy, any more than fear is something to be eliminated so that we can have courage. Courage overcomes, but does not replace, fear. Joy overcomes, but does not replace, pain.
When we realize this, we feel moments when we meet our limitations not as times to retreat, but as opportunities for happiness, meaning, engagement, exploration, creativity, achievement, beauty, and love. I hope everyone can find that .
