I was with a group of friends yesterday and I was truly amazed by the courage they displayed in turning around very challenging family and work situations. These obstacles were not of the tiny variety. They were big, complex, and overwhelming. Each person won because s/he chose not to just cope, but to transform the environment from the inside out. This inner transformation is not for the faint-hearted as it requires taking full responsibility (even if it looks like another person is the cause of your suffering), driving past the fear and doubt that inevitably emerges, and allowing others to support you.
How could they not win?
Have a great day,
