This phrase by Mark Nepo in The Book of Awakening called out to me this morning:
“…crisis after crisis throws us into each other.”
It got me thinking about all the close encounters I have with others, whether physically or figuratively – especially times where there’s tension – when I’m uncomfortable or afraid. That got me exploring how I respond when thrown into someone else during crisis, considering my default expectation and go-to story when things get messy. What if I considered each little and big crisis an invitation – an invitation to wake up, to tune in, to recalibrate and connect with what really matters in my life?
