Suffering when you can see the point is hard. Suffering when you can’t see the point is harder.
Maybe you're facing a problem, old or new, that has you frozen in your tracks or pacing in your bunker. Maybe you've tried giving it (or yourself) time, but found yourself growing stagnant.

How do we catch our balance when life skips a stride?
