Inside you is a book of wisdom written by our elders. Brush away what obscures this to appreciate with clarity what is written on these pages. It will ground you.

Amid all of the noise and confusion in the world, there is a place you can always go to find genuine support, encouragement, peace, and solace. This place is within you, where the voice of wisdom speaks. This voice will offer you positive alternatives and real guidance to help you discover a different and richer way of life. If it has been a little while since you last listened closely to it, it may be a little hard to hear. But if you give it a chance, it will reward you with all of the wisdom, guidance, and inspiration you require.

This week I thought we’d explore how important it is to extract and retain the wisdom we’ve acquired while struggling with life’s inevitable bumps and detours. There’s no doubt that a full life includes all kinds of twists and turns and setbacks. It’s also true that some of us deal with bigger and uglier challenges than others…and yet we all have STUFF to grapple with.

If you’ve made it to the other side of a difficulty (or even if you’re still struggling right now) it’s important to note that if you’re breathing, you have a 100% survival rate when it comes to conquering challenges and changes. And since you made it this far, I’m guessing you’ve learned things about yourself and life that are worth holding on to. The trick is to embrace the wisdom and release the yucky parts.

Easy? Nope. Worth it? Almost certainly.

P.S. To all who have served, and to all who support them: Happy Veteran’s Day.
