"Some people grumble because roses have thorns; I am thankful that the thorns have roses." Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr The older I get the more I've come to believe that from every difficult situation comes some good if we choose to look for that good. Of course it is never fun to be faced with a negative challenge. Pain and heartache aren't a thrill and great sadness does not feel good either, however, if we can look for the positive or the learning in every situation, particularly the difficult ones, we not only grow but we come out on the other side much stronger and less bruised. So my dear friends, the next time you are faced with a difficult or even painful situation try asking yourself this question, "What am I meant to learn from this?"
Don't fret if the answer doesn't come right away, just have faith that it will and faith that whatever lies behind the difficulties there is some amazing jewel to be discovered. A jewel that you can hold on to and keep for future use.
