Life is full of surprises and uncertainties, especially when we tune into the Presidential election, National and International events. It is nearly impossible to get through a work day without someone differing in opinion with you. Sometimes life's surprises are pleasant and sometimes not so much. This week I would like to invite you into the world of Pema Chodron and meet these moments like the warrior you are. Here is what she has to say about working with challenges:

"…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are."
