The Power of Pain: Shift Your Perspective

In April 2020, I was inspired to write The Gift of Pain. Its purpose was to encourage us to pursue our passions, to fulfil our purpose, as well as explore the relationship between pain and passion. While it was not intended to be a post to celebrate the season of Easter and what it represents, I did use the example of the passion of Jesus Christ (celebrated at Easter) to help make my point.

Coincidentally, I am once again contemplating pain. I promise you, it was not planned; but was instead brought on by a particular situation that I found to be emotionally painful. This time, I explore the power of pain. Its power to move and to shape us. It just so happens, that it is once again the season of Easter. A time where the Christian community celebrates the suffering of Jesus Christ – His death and His resurrection – and what that means for us.

#Me Too – 3 Benefits of Shared Humanity

When cellular phones were just becoming popular in my country, there was a particular phone that most people owned. This eventually gave rise to the slang “me too”. People would often say, “you have one of those? Me too!” You have probably shared a similar experience with someone, maybe regarding a different item.  A couple years ago, both internationally and locally, there was the #metoo movement. This movement was geared towards addressing the issue of sexual violence and sexual harassment against women. It is also a way to encourage empathy and solidarity among those who have suffered as a result of sexual violence.
