The Moral Adventure

Image result for images of change in lifeChange can come slamming through your life, ripping and tearing and leaving gaping holes that can take years to mend. It can also penetrate slowly like a hypodermic needle, sharp, deep and filled with a medicine that can cause extreme discomfort before it delivers a healing relief. The moment may be forced on us by a doctor's words or be delivered in bits and pieces, as a broken relationship dissolves - lost, damaged, ended. Choosing to fight through it can mean the beginning of a moral adventure - one that will take you closer to your authentic self, grow you, and change you from the inside out.
