Quote

Everything with substance casts a shadow. The ego stands to the shadow as light to shade. This is the quality that makes us human. Much as we would like to deny it, we are imperfect. And perhaps it is in what we don’t accept about ourselves—our aggression and shame, our guilt and pain—that we discover our humanity.

Life Changing Events

In the past, whenever I heard the words “life changing event” I imagined a single event in which my entire life changed. Recently I came to realize that life changing events happen every day. These events are usually a series of small things that happen, not always one major event. These smaller events, whether physical or metaphysical, create new ideas and have the potential to expand our current thinking and improve our physical circumstances. A simple shift in thinking about one negative thing can be life changing when you begin looking at it in a positive light.
