TWIL (This Week I Learned.)
This week I learned that most likely, the more challenges you have faced through life, the stronger you may be able to become…with lots and lots of work (read: work = therapy/mindfulness training).
“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.” — M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled
