Adversity’s Blessings

Audio Version of Every Day Hope Message:

Every battle you fight has a purpose. Every challenge illuminates the strength you possess. Your pain is not permanent and your life is not cursed. You are beautiful and strong beyond measure.

In adversity, there is always the opportunity to choose hope. Amidst the difficulties, there is always the opportunity to embrace gratitude for what’s good in your life. Through the challenges, there are always blessings hidden in the folds; you simply have to choose to see them.

Gratitude is not simply looking out at the world around you and smiling, it is smiling and embracing the small blessings throughout your world.

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the ability to act in the presence of fear.

Perseverance is not the random act of getting up after one fall, it is the conscious choice to get up after every fall with a renewed sense of purpose.

Whether you see it or not, you embody gratitude, courage and perseverance simply by virtue of your journey. Hone those skills each day and find joy in the person you are becoming because of the adversity you’ve faced.

Every obstacle you face has a purpose.
