Whether an original or modern-day pilgrim, there can be much abundance in suffering while on our journeys. Personal growth and healing come in many forms and many layers. Thanksgiving this year reminded me not only of gratitude but how we can rise above loss to have meaningful and productive lives, full of abundance.
The holidays are not all their cracked up to be for some people with chronic illness. They can be downright painful, filled with grief for many. There is nothing that can be said that can change that. So what do you do if you are one of those people? You breathe, deeply.
