 “There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”

 ~Willa Cather


 All experiences in life are opportunities for learning if we pay attention in the moment. Sometimes life will give you stretches of relative ease, with many things coming easily and with little effort. Other times life will seem cruel as you face significant challenges and nothing seems to go your way. In both situations, there is much to learn and if you are able to pause and reflect on both the situation and your reaction to it and to those around you. Whatever the lesson, take it in and grow your ability to appreciate moments of calm and build your courage and capabilities during difficult times.
