On The “Gift” of Adversity

Apr 12, 2024

Adversity is the gift nobody asks for and nobody wants.

It often comes at the worst of times and it doesn’t pay dividends until much later.

We do our best to avoid it, struggle when we are in the midst of it, and are relieved when we get through it.

How we deal with adversity is one of the greatest lessons in life. We can use it to improve ourselves, as an excuse to stay where we are or worse, regress.

We have the power to decide.
