Chris Blank - Arlington, Texas USA
I have lost everything I owned 3 times, but the worst was losing my apartment in a fire. I have had breathing trouble for the last 10 years from the smoke inhalation. But with all that grief, I think it may have been the biggest and most helpful event in my life.
When tragedy strikes, I just keep going. And I have noticed that with each event I change and grow stronger. I absolutely hate it when I am going through it, but on the other side, with hind sight, I can see that the event helped me grow into something stronger.
So the Phoenix mythic cycle is very special to me- it reminds me that there is light on the other side, to not give up - just push through.
