I am so grateful for my journey; the good, the bad, and the ugly.
 So often when the bad and the ugly come, we become angry, depressed, and negative.

If only we would learn to embrace all three because they all are a part of our growth.

Yes, we have to acknowledge and process emotions, such as grief and disappointment, to name a few, but we’re not supposed to stay there for a long period of time, wandering around in the desert for 40 days. If we do that, we stunt our growth.

Life is ebb and flow and no matter how much we pray, meditate, or how spiritual we are, we can’t change that fact. So why not receive it, process it, release it, and then move on so we can enjoy more of our life?

I know it’s not easy, but it’s so rewarding when you reach a spot where you feel peace in the midst of the storm.
