Live Inspired Vlog #69: Learning to Embrace Sorrow

Vlog #69

Earlier this week, I walked into our family room and witnessed all four of my kids lined up on the couch watching a children’s sitcom on TV. This show had funny thing after funny thing after trivial thing happening, but no where during the show did they teach any real life lessons.

The show reminded me of a poem that used to hang above my grandmother’s sink. This poem called out the differences between sorrow and pleasure and reminded us of the need for both.

In today’s vlog, I encourage you not to seek out sorrow, but to embrace it when it enters your life and to recognize all the important lessons you can learn from it.

Enjoy this week’s vlog and remember that Today is your Day. Live Inspired.
