If there is one thing in life that is guaranteed, it is that each of us will experience significant challenges at different points in our lives. Whether these challenges are foreseen, unforeseen, put upon us by others, or even the product of our own doing, these challenges can often seem overwhelming, and can even be outright debilitating. We may experience feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, fear, anxiety, or depression. We may experience hardship in our relationships which further feeds these unpleasant feelings and can cause us to feel alone and isolated, leading to further feelings of smallness and insignificance. And sometimes, when we are really down, we may even feel as if life is not worth living at all.

But amid these challenges remains the light of hope, whether we are able to see it or not. To see it, we may be forced to change the way we look at life and our situation, to find new sources of personal strength and empowerment, and to reevaluate the ways we ascribe meaning to the present. This is by no means an easy feat, but it is something that we are all capable of as meaning-making beings. And when we are able to find meaning and purpose, even in the midst of pain and suffering, we find freedom, and we unlock the capacity to truly live well.

 I want to invite you into this life-changing process, and to encourage you to walk the path before you with confidence in the hope of something better; to reconnect with your true self with acceptance and compassionate understanding. I invite you to say “YES” to life and to living well.
