Without adversity, we can’t become who we’re meant to be. Who our loved ones need us to be. It stretches us out of our old self and into the new. It expands our edges and transforms us from the inside out.
“I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy and creativity to name a few.” -Brené Brown
