Pain and Beauty

I have found that the amount of joy and beauty that we experience in life is equal to the amount of pain we are open to.  This doesn't mean that we have to hurt all of the time.  It means that we must allow ourselves to be vulnerable and be strong enough to allow ourselves to experience pain in order to fully appreciate beauty and love.

Be brave, it's worth it.

  1. I can usually see the beauty, afterwards. But seeing it while still being in the middle of pain, is difficult.
