Speaker: Beth Buelow has been part of the C3 Community since March 2018, and has loved every minute of it.

Moment of Silence

Reading/Teaching: Beth Buelow

In life we think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem. The real truth is that things really don’t get solved. They just come together for a time, then they fall back apart. Then they come back together for a time and fall apart again. It’s just like that.

Personal discovery and growth come from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, room for relief, for misery, for joy. Let the hard things in life break you. Let them effect you. Let them change you. Let this pain be your teacher. The experiences of your life are trying to tell you something about yourself. Don’t cop out on that. Don’t run away and hide under your covers. Lean into it.
