1. We didn’t get everything we asked for in the form we imagined

2. Just the right struggle and loss brought forth the hidden strength

3. Having less made us regard we do have as more precious

4. The ending we feared was accompanied by a delightful new beginning

5. Our body betrayed a truth we had overlooked

6. The arriving day of Thanksgiving helped us number our days

7. Seeing the photograph brought a painful memory … and healing

8. Letting go of trying to be the traffic cop of the universe set us free

9. Honoring the submerged voice of truth in ourselves helped us attend to that in others

10. Discovering that this world of ours is much simpler, more complex, unexplainable, elegant, horrific and beautiful than we thought it was

(Add to the list …)
