The Wisdom Of Embracing Life’s Challenges

Intentional Living

Saying Yes to Life’s Challenges

  • Everything Changes and Ends
    Our illusion that things will be fair, or that pain won’t happen to us, or that people will be trustworthy, is called into question by the situations we face in the course of our life.
  • Things Do Not Always Go According to Plan
    Being wise means living with life’s conditions in an allowing way.
  • Life is Not Always Fair
    A wise person knows that losses will happen sometimes, that unfair dealings will sometimes occur, and that he can survive them.
  • Pain is Part of Life
    Since life is a journey, we can grow not only by conquest of fear but also by occasional surrender to it.
  • People Are Not Loving and Loyal All the Time
    Love arises from our imperfection, from our being different and always in need of forgiveness, encouragement, and the missing half of ourselves that we are searching for.

  1. I like how you simplify the important questions about life in your posts. It makes philosophy very accessible to people who were smart enough not to major in it 😂🤣🤣 (coming from a philosophy major)

    BTW love the name of your blog! Mine’s not so far off.
