“Grapes must be crushed to make wine. Diamonds form under pressure. Olives must be pressed to release oil. Seeds grow in darkness. Whenever you feel crushed, under pressure, pressed or in darkness, you’re transforming. Trust the process.” ~Lalah Delia
When challenges come our way and our life as we have known it is crumbling before our eyes, it often feels like the end of the world for us. It’s easy to let fear take control in moments like these. Recognizing that these are moment of transformation makes it easier to face the fear, have courage, and trust the process to lead us into new beginnings.

Courage is a skill we develop through practice. Every time we face our fears and do what scares us anyway, we strengthen our courage muscle.
