Grateful for all the ways life has shaped me.
Saying that isn’t without the kind of heartbreak that never quite heals, nor without MANY lessons learned.
Big, hard, expensive, gut-wrenching lessons.
But such is the nature of living this life and I’m a far more open, loving, happy, and purpose-driven person because of it all.
“Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without the struggle to overcome those obstacles, you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart strength. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be comfortable and safe but dull and utterly pointless.” 💛 Dr. Earl Reum
Grateful for the Ways…
