In times like these we are constantly challenged to face little deaths in our lives: who we once were, a relationship ending, loss of a loved one, a career, a cherished time in our lives. During transitions, we have time to reinvent ourselves. When we dont, a deadening happens. That deadening causes us to age instead of becoming the sage. If we go through these little deaths consciously, they become opportunities for new life. Instead of being wounded by transitions, we become inspired by them if we have the prerequisite courage. How we respond to adversity turns us into courageous beings. Courage can come out of frustration, illness, from many sources, sparked by adversity or by the divine.
