What's one lesson you find super compelling?

      Learn to be comfortable with discomfort:>)
      Be like the mighty oak in the middle of the storm:>)
      • Apr 21 2012: There are people who even draw strength from chaos.

        Apr 23 2012: Mwenjew and DW,
        I agree...there is opportunity in every moment:>)
        And...sometimes, we have to dig through a little dirt to begin to see the seeds sprouting:>)
        It is not always easy to experience the goodness unless we uncover some of the dirt!
