During a discussion in the fertility yoga workshop I am currently leading, one of the women shared this quote. I was struck by the power carried by the seemingly simple sentiment.
It can be so easy to identify with our challenges or shortcomings that we forget they are simply one piece of the much larger narrative of our lives. And it can seem impossible to believe we will learn and grow from the experience, emerging stronger and more compassionate than we began.
Can you see beyond the struggles you currently face? Can you envision a life made more full by the experience?
