Resisting loss at all costs

Loss is a natural part of life and an essential part of growth. In our modern culture, we tend to resist loss at all costs. When we resist, we also resist change. Loss is often viewed as failure rather than feedback. Our society punishes people by taking things away from them and we associate loss with personal failure, shame and guilt. We let our souls die a slow death to avoid uncertainty and loss. Maybe if we shift our thinking from misfortune to a blessing we allow ourselves to sense growth opportunities and appreciate the knowledge that growth accompanies loss. Become the student of life. Lean in to the joy without holding back. Lead you by surrendering to the loss with an open heart. What if we put all our energy not into forgetting, but into remembering with a humble heart and a grateful soul?
