"I am stronger because of the hard times, wiser because of my mistakes and happier because I have known sadness. The same is true for you. Every difficult conversation you have includes someone who is teaching you something about yourself. Every trying situation contains an opportunity for deeper self reflection and learning. Every irritant, heartbreak, frustration,disappointment, fearful moment and sadness is a teacher. Remember, nothing is as bad as it seems. Nothing! There's a benefit and a blessing hidden in the folds of every experience and every outcome. So don't you dare give up on today because of the way things looked yesterday. Don't even think about it. Everyday is a new day to try again." Culled from Mark and Angela Hack Life, " Practical Tips for Productive Living"
