Wise men say that we won't face more adversity in life than we can handle. Wise men say that each moment of our lives prepares us to live life more fully today and tomorrow.
I can say that over the past few weeks, I have been a little hard-pressed to feel or truly appreciate the wisdom of the wise.
Loss. It is something that invariably and eventually appears in our lives. We will all experience loss in some way or another: a friend, a family member, a love. Loss makes an appearance in our world and can challenge us to the core of our being – but there is much to be learned.
The zone. It's a magical place to be. The zone is a moment in time when everything is clicking and flowing.
We often think of it in terms of sports. With March Madness upon us, I always think of the point guard who is shooting the lights out. He's in the zone. He can't and doesn't miss. Shots are flowing. There is a rhythm, a tempo, a feeling of insurmountable confidence.
We find ourselves in the zone in all aspects of life at one time or another. It's a place that we all seek, be it in our work lives, our athletic endeavors, or our creative pursuits. But we also find ourselves struggling at times to find it.
