The paradox of grief is depends on one irrefutable truth. Nothing stays the same. Over the years I have worked with the most courageous people imaginable. People who have experienced profound traumas and crushing life experiences. People who have lost everything through fire, flood, illness and war. Some emerged stronger. Some chose to end the pain in a conscious act. Some used their experiences to inspire and help others and some chose a life where every small thing was a gift to be quietly and yet deeply appreciated. Every one of us is born with the gift of free will. Every next-action is a choice. There are no right or wrong choices. There are only choices and the consequent outcomes of those choices. This podcast share a few of my own choices during challenging times in my life.
