When my parents divorced (age 10) – I knew it was a good thing and also realized life is not easy, move on.
When my brother died – I grew up.
When my husband went through extreme job stress – he grew so much.
When I got into a tiff last year with a good friend – the outcome was her becoming one of my best friends.
Perhaps it’s the way you look at these situations but as I plot along through life I know things can change without notice.
I have to smile a little as I look back on some of the yuck I’ve been through, because it served it’s purpose.
Do you grow the most during the toughest of times?
