Our painful experiences strengthen us in becoming more empathetic, more caring, and deeper human beings. We grow in depth of understanding, with greater appreciation for the miracle of life. ~ Alexandra Stoddard

This quote resonated for me because it’s a major theme of my books, especially Somewhere Between Luck and Trust.  I can look back at the things that have hurt the most and see not just the pain, but the  growth and empathy for others that have come from them.  When the pain subsides I know that you can, too.

How have you turned your painful experiences into a greater awareness of the miracle of life?
