Freedom, by Jill Cooper, Exult Road

Freedom, by Jill Cooper, Exult Road

Often hidden in the "problem" rests the key to freedom. Peel off the bitter rind of what seems like an "issue" and relish what you have been given, what you have created, what you feel—bittersweet as it may be. 

 

Not as a "lesson" or an "obstacle to overcome," but expect that joy can surprise you even amidst a knot of frustration. 

 

Slow down and feel everything.

 

The fruit of joy can so often appear where you least expected it! Let every so-called problem have a chance to present its gifts to you.

 

Heaven is always now.
