“The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.”
~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

We all have countless challenges and sufferings to deal with in our lives.
While some people choose to fall victim to their circumstances – blaming others or ‘fortune’ in general for their circumstances and getting stuck in feeling badly about them – others choose to use these experiences to grow, to become more joyful, and to share all that they can with others.
It is these individuals who know how to turn something broken into something beautiful.
Have a peaceful weekend, friends.
