The Gumption to Show Up

She had no idea how it would all turn out. But she had the gumption to show up and figure it out. She liked that about herself. - Queenisms™

We were talking the other day about all the amazing things that have happened to us in our lives and talk, naturally, turned to all the hellish, stressful and painful things that have also happened and we asked one another this question. If you’d known then what you know now, would you have shown up? For us the answer was yes. Even the painful moments in our life have, in hindsight, been valuable in terms of forging the women we have become today. Kathy shares, in our book, how her father’s death when she was just a young teenage girl, was painful and left her and her mother feeling vulnerable but how from that came the social security benefits that helped her go to college – something she would not have been able to afford otherwise. Now, would she rather have had her father in her life longer? Absolutely. But in hindsight, something good came from something painful and so she’s learned to look at everything not through a good versus bad lens but through the lens of experience.

Did you ever have something bad happen to you that in hindsight turned out to open a door, lead you down a new path or reveal something important to you?
