quote du jour ~muller – in that inevitable…

In that inevitable, excruciatingly human moment, we are offered a powerful choice. This choice is perhaps one of the most vitally important choices we will ever make, and it determines the course of our lives from that moment forward. The choice is this: Will we interpret this loss as so unjust, unfair, and devastating that we feel punished, angry, forever and fatally wounded– or, as our heart, torn apart, bleeds its anguish of sheer, wordless grief, will we somehow feel this loss as an opportunity to become more tender, more open, more passionately alive, more grateful for what remains?

    • I understand. :-) My shift was more gradual, but I think it started with realizing that I couldn’t regret a major life choice that led to a lot of pain because of all the wonderful things that came about because of that choice. (Thanks for the re-blog!)
