crisis = danger + opportunity


The Chinese symbol for Crisis is comprised of two characters: one indicating "danger" and the other, "opportunity".

I have found that in the crisis of losing my father and my job at the same time, I (eventually) became open to new opportunity. I seemed better able to prioritize what was important and focus on what worked for me. And doors just keep opening up. I am more prepared to take risks and experience relative danger in order to reap the benefits.

This symbol resonates for me right now.
