This post just opened up a whole new way of thinking for me.
To think of hardship as a gift is revolutionary. I feel an opening up, a letting go, of the resentment I had hung on to – that I didn’t even know was there. The Why Me. The feeling that I had been singled out for an especially hard row to hoe.
I have learned many lessons about the amazing power of love and the importance of the connections we have, and I value and am grateful for these lessons. I am glad to have my eyes opened to a different way of living, and I know I will live a different life now. I already am.
But I didn’t think of this hard lesson as a gift of love until just this moment. I am changed forever yet again.
