There are times in our lives when we experience hard times. Times when we are not sure how we will make it through. Think back on a time when you thought you couldn’t make it and you did. Even when the outcome is not what we expect, often times we are learning, growing and enhancing our life experience through challenges. If we change our perspective, we may be able to become more compassionate, grateful and loving. Realize that life is a journey. Stop and smell the roses along the way.
