Discomfort of any kind is meant to teach us. We learn from our mistakes, but we also learn from our discomfort. It’s how we respond to the discomfort that makes all the difference.
Recently I attended the Colorado State Chapter Convention of P.E.O. (Philanthropic Educational Organization). It was an empowering experience and I met a lot of amazing women who are changing the lives of women all over the world. As I have been processing the depth of information I received over the course of the convention, I am struck by a few “universal” thoughts that I want to share with you.
I’ve spent a lot of time lately going through everything I own and letting go of as much as I can. Earlier this week, the Vietnam Veterans of America graciously picked up a rather large donation as a result of this letting-go process. It’s a difficult process, but certainly a powerful one. It’s not just a Spring Cleaning, but more of a mental and spiritual purification ceremony.
