Episode Summary:

As human beings, life can be challenging. This human experience is not for the faint of heart, especially to dare to live life with an open heart and dare to love and dare to care, dare to serve, to have the intentionality to live for a purpose that is bigger than yourself.”

In today’s special episode of SoulTalk Podcast, if you are going through a difficult time in life, I share some tips on how you can navigate through these dark times.

As human beings, we likely go through stages of darkness triggered by major disruptions in life, such as divorce, illness, loss, betrayal, abuse, job loss, financial hardships, break-ups, or poverty. But let me say this straight to you, this darkness you are experiencing right now can represent privacy, solitude, and a sense of security leading to a better, wiser, and bolder better version of yourself. Because darkness can be a potent time that reveals something deeper about yourself and darkness forces you to look inside yourselves for the light which is always present within you.

One thing is for sure, you had, you’re experiencing now, or you’ll have to go through darkness whether you like it or not. Head over to this week’s episode to learn more about some ways how you can navigate dark times in your life.
