“If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse.” – Anthon St. Maarten
It took me a long time to understand this, but I think I finally do.
And it is incredibly liberating.
Happy 25th to myself; I’m grateful for all the small things, the big things, and everything in between.
This is a beautiful life. ❤
