“The most profound personal growth does not happen while reading a book or meditating on a mat. It happens in the throes of conflict—when you are angry, afraid, frustrated. It happens when you are doing the same old thing and you suddenly realize that you have a choice.” –Vironika Tugaleva
Thanks for checking out my profile! Life can come at you hard and fast. Perhaps you are facing a major life transition, having relationship issues, been diagnosed with a serious or chronic illness or struggling with balancing work, home and caregiving responsibilities for a spouse or family member. There may be tough conversations about the future that need to happen. You may be overwhelmed by distressing thoughts, feelings or situations.
