Though the darker moments in our lives can be extremely scary and painful, they are also filled with opportunities of growth and learning.
It is inevitable that we will all fall upon major challenges in our lives that are somewhat out of our control. However, what is within our control is our commitment to show up to the dark times with an open mindset towards self-compassion, and to make meaning out of our struggles.
We cannot be lulled into believing that “Positive Vibes Only” is the goal. It in fact can be one of the most dangerous mantras for sustainable health and healing.
It brings me all the vibes to share with you my first time taking the TEDx stage. My hope is that we can all learn to make room for our pain, honour it, and also transform from it.
Let’s honour the dark, so we may revel in our light.
