You must allow yourself to grow in all the places
people thought you never would."
~ E.V. Rogina
There was a blizzard in New Mexico the day I snapped this, and my car skid and hit a curb. I pulled over a minute and cried, full of gratitude that I didn't get hurt or hurt anyone else. This life is fragile, and I know I take it for granted. I am sitting here in Calgary today, it's cold but sunny. I'm filled with an overwhelming feeling of surrender. This quote is exactly how I desire to live. With acceptance of where I am, there is the ability to grow. Without it, struggle impedes and overwhelms the joy of expansion of my heart. Because life really doesn't get easier, there will always be grief or loss, today I choose resilience because that is where grace lies.
