What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perhaps it’s the change in our weather that’s making me feel more than a little philosophical but today my thoughts are centered around the idea that we learn so much more from the things that don’t go right than we ever do from the things that do.
I think it’s the challenges that create the most growth. How we view them, how we react to them, what we take away from them.
I also think that facing challenges builds more compassion for others as well.
And we could all use a little more of that couldn’t we?
