The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Bad things happen to all of us in this life. It does not make us who we are, what defines us is how we respond to these events. Do we choose to sit mute in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the acuteness of the pain? Or do choose to rise up, face the sun and learn to treasure what was lost, but, treasure the loss only as deeply as we should treasure what is yet to come. If we choose stillness, we stagnate, stunted from life, if we choose to rise above the pain, we create another multi-faceted layer of beautifully colored patina to our soul. I choose the pursuit of rich, color-filled, gloriously, messy-beautiful life, how about you?
