Struggles Became My Strength
I have surrounded myself with positivity and have an easier time seeing the good in other people. The reverse is also true. People who teach themselves to see the good in others tend to be more positive and experience happiness more deeply. Seeing the good in others requires us to question our assumptions, but, it is worth the effort. By the time I reached my 50s, I have had decades to form opinions about others. Some of these are justified and others are based purely on our own biases. As a result, if we want to find true happiness in the second half of our life, we need to remind ourselves to see the good in people.Like many of us in life, I have faced many different crisis in life, but I never, ever gave up. After each stumble, after each accident I have kept going, not because Im this strong person, but because God felt that my time on earth was not finished yet. Although I did not have Christ in my life, God knew that my Christian faith instilled in me by my Mother would come to surface within time. The time had to be chosen by me, maybe only after God threw so many personal crises in my way, would I realize that I needed Gods help to guide and direct me. That time was 6/22/2013, that was the day I was born again, it became my second birthday in life.Challenges are a part of life. Whether it be challenging times, people or circumstances, most of us can relate to coming up against roadblocks in life that feel hard, unfair, or that can even be devastating at times. Some people face the most unthinkable tragedies and somehow come out the other side stronger. Others crumble under the weight of the pressure and heartache they face.In times of struggle, having a resilient spirit becomes an asset that seems to transform challenges into opportunities for growth.
