Nothing ever gets easier, you just get stronger.
All of those incredibly difficult chapters that you have lived through… at the time, each one seemed almost insurmountable. And yet, here you are.
How does this happen? It’s certainly not that everything suddenly got so much easier.
Each life experience gives us opportunity to grow. Whether we like it or not. Whether we want it or not. It just is what it is.
Hopefully, a few lessons are learned along the way and these give birth to a wider foundation of collected experience that enables us to take on greater and more challenging variables.
When something massive comes out of nowhere, the statement: “nothing could have prepared us for this!“ Is a regular accompaniment. But the truth is, everything we do is preparing us.
One of the most useful aphorisms that I have encountered is: “when you lose, don’t lose the lesson.“ That is, in my humble opinion, the underlying component that perpetually keeps us more prepared for what may lie ahead.
The prognosis of positive outcomes to the vaccines are starting to pave the way to an optimistic return to normalcy. That said, I don’t think anybody was prepared for a year of lockdown. The calamity and devastation that it has left in its wake is incalculable. But our determination to prevail as bolstered our strength and enabled our growth so that we might come out of this chapter of darkness with greater enlightenment then we entered it. And perhaps that is the greatest take away of them all. Happy Wednesday!
