… and when it does, we learn how to handle whatever it is we face.
We are resilient.
We get back on the horse.
I’ve never been properly prepared for the major catastrophes that have come along in my life. Are we ever? And yet I’ve survived them. Bankruptcy, divorce, job loss and job change, death of family members, an economy gone haywire and a ton more of uninvited occurrences.
And with each one comes a lesson. With each one comes an opportunity to see the good and strengthen one’s ability to handle adversity.
Do you see how resilient we are as growing people? This post is not about ten steps on how to overcome adversity. It IS about the look-back after the fact and a reflection on our ability to overcome.
We are overcomers!
We are conquerors!
We didn’t ask for the setbacks, the derailments of life. But surely as I’m here and you are reading this, we are overcomers.
WE ARE OVERCOMERS!
Pause for a moment and let that sink in.
You have your sources of help, your support team, your strong arms that you resort to just as I do when the awful happens. And we get through it.
And we have our faith, our spiritual source.
So, onward and upward.
Whatever happens today … we rally our team and we face it head on.
Because WE CAN!
