I find this to be a VERY interesting concept. Embracing pain? Really? Like those sharp, shooting pains that run down my right leg? Or the dull ache that constantly resides in my right shoulder? You seriously want me to embrace it? Really? You must be joking.
I can think of lots of other things I'd prefer to embrace. Like a friend. Or a puppy. Or a pony. Or a pillow. But pain? No thanks.
BUT. If I do choose to embrace that pain, and it does indeed become fuel for this journeycalledlife, then maybe it is worth a go?
As one of those people who believes everything happens for a reason, I guess there IS a reason for pain, and maybe that reason is that it IS what provides fuel for this journeycalledlife that we are all on. I guess that would give a little more positive purpose to the pain that placates me persistently.
Definitely something to munch on for a while......
