“Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything. Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
An old friend and I were talking the other day about how quickly things can change in just a few months, and nothing has proved this more than the events of the last year. And more than the events themselves – the facts of them and the effects of them, too – it has been the paths that have opened up in my life and in my way of thinking that have become the most valuable to me.
I find myself sitting here before I go to bed clutching the lessons to my chest and reviewing them over and over again lest I lose them or forget their weight.
Two that I keep returning to over and over again these days are about growth, and about letting go.
