aging without botox

Daily Ground – – -January 13th

“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.”

Andy Rooney

There was a time in my life when pain was the touchstone to spiritual growth.  I had to be backed against the proverbial wall (wailing) before I would surrender and change.  Although I can still use pain as a lesson, I have learned to change and grow without being in agony. Often it comes from simply sitting: turning off the noise from the world, checking my motives through self examination, listening to spiritual friends, telling on myself, and trusting that all is well in the universe.

Don’t run from the pain of the climb, you will be amazed at what you find when you stop grimacing and get your stride.

Peace.
