It's Yom Kippur, a day of deep reflection and atonement. And on this day, I feel truly sorry for many things.
I spent today making a list of all the ways in which I want to grow and change. And it was long. And it wasn't fun to do and it wasn't pretty. And I can't say I felt great about myself when I was done.
But, I then listened to a podcast by James Baraz on letting go of suffering and attachments, and what I was so lucky to hear, was that through our suffering, we find joy. Through our unskillful actions, we learn, we grow, we evolve, we change in beautiful ways.
And I believe that in seeing the areas in which I need to grow and being aware of them, I'm making space to let the light in and choose a better, more joyful way.
