Disaster's opportunity.

Disaster strikes, you find your world turned upside down. All that you thought you knew is not, and the learning curve is a vertical line, straight up. 

Constructive habits disintegrate, destructive patterns reemerge. Upon the cliff edge we find ourselves staring into the abyss.

Within these moments exists simultaneous opacity and extreme clarity, and with that some of life's greatest opportunity.

To learn what we are really made of.
To be reminded of those people in our lives that really matter.
To ask ourselves who we really want to be.
To test our most firmly held beliefs.

And... 

To step the fuck up.

It is in that moment when all appears lost, when you find yourself pushed to the brink, that some of the most fantastic opportunities exist.
