Life is like water down the river, an infinite flow through both anticipated and unanticipated obstacles. We refer to these obstacles as shifts. Through these shifts we become a more refined version and identify what is of value in our time here. The best way to handle any shift is to embrace that there is more to gain internally by going through the other side.
