Can accepting and embracing your adversities be the key to living out your wildest dreams? My guest, Elaine Gabalac, opens up for the first time about living with epilepsy. Diagnosed at fourteen, she was angry, sad and scared. But things had to get a lot worse before she realized that the very thing destroying her life was also the very thing she needed to embrace — and that thing was fear. “Fear is useless,” she says. “You can't summon courage to meet fear from a place of emptiness.”

Grateful now for having epilepsy, it's taught Elaine how to accept and embrace adversity and how to overcome fear. “Now I can catch all that is good and within my reach. I can enjoy the little things in life. That's the art of living,” she says. “But it's a choice. Healing is a choice; faith is a choice; courage is a choice." Life is a choice. Give yourself the chance to live the life you're dreaming about. In the words of Mark Nepo: “One life. Just one. Why aren't we running like we're on fire towards our wildest dreams?"
