This is how I choose to see the bumps in life. Challenges are golden opportunities to uncover other layers of the self, shedding light on those areas that need healing. They take us to a higher level of our existence, allowing us to raise our consciousness and seek balance, remaining centered in the face of adversity.
Regardless of how it happened, you haven't seen your son, grandchildren or your daughter-in-law in weeks, months, maybe even years. You've called, emailed, and texted. You've tried everything you can think of to turn things around, but nothing changes -- except that their anger towards you seems to be growing.
