I have heard people relate stories of harrowing experiences. They speak of job loss, illness, dire accidents, emotional trauma, and other life-altering events. You would expect the end of the story to reflect despair, anguish, fear and total surrender. But unexpectedly they say, “it was the best thing that could have happened”. I stand in awe.

These people are survivors. Their spirit is strong. I know they felt every raw emotion imaginable, cried never-ending tears and wondered if they would ever recover. The one constant is their ability to find wonder. They grab hold of one thought, one goal, one reason to live. They develop the power to stay laser-focused. You can see it in their eyes. Their ordeal has introduced them to joy.

Have trials enhanced your appreciation of life?

  1. Anything that happens to you happens for a reason and at the end of it you’re a changed person. Hopefully for the better. We really don’t appreciate it at the time but these events make us stronger.

  2. they change is for sure, how…that is up to us. there is always two sides of the coin, not everyone has that inner strength to find the good in bad situations. that is why writing is important, we need to share stories. real stories to help others cope in those situations.
