Experience and Character

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success acheived.” ~Helen Keller
We may wish for an easier life at times, but we know that the way we handle ourselves in the difficult periods is what truly shapes who we are. The people we admire most aren’t those who’ve had everything given to them. They are the people who have had to work hard and even suffer to acheive what they have acheived.
We can handle life’s tragedies and setbacks.  We don’t welcome these events, but we recognize that they have much more to do with defining our character than the happy times do.
Have a beautiful Wednesday!!!!!
