Have you ever experienced a struggle, that while at the time was torturous, resulted in a learning experience that you wouldn’t go back and change because it brought you to a better place?
Yes, all that.
I’ve experienced a few of those and while on the surface they seem quite hellish, I’ve used them as stepping stones to grow and find wisdom. I believe that’s why they’re there in the first place.
If you’re going through one of those hellish times, know that it’s happening for a reason. I truly believe you’re supposed to learn something from it. Some call it Godly intervention, and some choose to focus inwardly. Both are meant to result in growth and wisdom. Lean into your pain, reflect on it, learn from it so that the next time it comes around, your wisdom can kick in and save you. If not, life has a way of giving us those lessons again.
Rather than tell my stories, I think this time I’ll leave this post with a few inspirational quotes. I hope you take a moment to reflect upon them and grow in your own wisdom.
