…a little wisdom from Pema today and it was exactly what I needed…

“…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.”
― Pema Chödrön

    These negative feelings show a person where he/she needs to grow- most assuredly. 🙂

    Wow, that rings so true for me lately. I’ve been irritable and impatient, and this is a good way to turn it around and look at what I’m resisting. Thank you so much for sharing this.
