Something that is thought provoking and/or inspiring.
I have learned that using my circumstances as an excuse to be miserable and negative reflects not on my hardship, but on me.
Sure, what I'm dealing with might not be all rainbows and lollipops, but it certainly isn't the worst thing out there. I still have a home. A family. A future. Many things to be thankful for. So I can use my hardships, or trials, as a way to grow, or I can treat them like the world is ending.
Well...you can still read this, so it must not be the end of the world after all.
I take comfort in knowing that I am not my trials--I am what the trials make me. So what am I? I don't want to be an egg, hardened from life, when I could be so much more. From this day on I shall continue to aspire to be a potato.
...........this was supposed to be meaningful, I swear.
