Do You Suffer in Your Pain?

It's officially Spring in Massachusetts, USA. But, as usual, it's still cold and damp, no buds on the trees yet or new life in the ground or warm sun. A friend complained, "Why do I live here and suffer this weather? I hate it." I couldn't argue , I don't like the cold either. But I wondered, do I suffer this weather? Or do I find it painful. Is there a difference? As I 'marinated' this thought, I realized that there is difference. And it's significant. That's why I'm sharing my thoughts here, with you.

Do You Suffer in Your Pain?

Are you practicing your fundamentals?

I've been MIA. And now I'm back. Originally, my absence here was due to decisions I'd made based on clear a intention. And then the unpredictable happened. And I had to readjust. I expect if you're here, you know what that's like. That's why this post is about setting intentions that allow you to work even when your health gets bad, experiencing the unpredictable, and using your fundamentals, the resources you need to maintain resilience.
