We all have our ups and downs in varying degrees.
When (what we describe as) bad things happen, there's a resounding "why?"
While that question may never be answered, times of trial and challenge can bring out the best in us – vulnerability that leads to more emotional openness, compassion, kindness, gentleness, support, unity, and sometimes action that propels change.
When inner landscapes are irrevocably altered by difficult times in your own life or in the world around you, a choice can be made to broaden your capacity for all of the above.
