Reflection: When the Wind Blows, Step by Step


When unexpected change overtakes us, it’s sometimes difficult to tell what’s up and what’s down. After all, when things are happening fast, it’s hard to keep track

After the upheaval has ended, we’re left standing in the debris, still wondering how to go on.

But you can.  Even if you need to take a beat and take a breath before you take another step. Kathrin shares a gift of wisdom she received from a trusted mentor, which helped her take a beat and take a breath before taking another step.

What is some wisdom you’ve received along your journey?
