Sometimes events occur in our lives that sweep through, rippling through the foundations of our life like tectonic ruptures, leaving us feeling off-kilter, a little broken. Illness, uncertainty, transition, betrayal, job loss…

It makes sense that we feel unbalanced when change rolls over us like a storm. We might feel minimized by the events that overwhelm us.

So...how do we move forward when we feel broken?

Sometimes we can move forward by standing still. The moon remains implacable in the sky above us as it moves over us during both night and day. And even as, little by little the moon becomes minimized as it traces its path through the sky, so too the moon begins to rebuild a little bit more of itself day by day. Until the moon once again reclaims its magnificent beautiful self.

And so, too, will you.
