Adversity

Adversity is like a strong wind. I don't mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go. It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.

Adversity is a good thing - it makes us much stronger!

Nothing like a good clearing wind. In fact, I can think of nothing more beautiful than seeing ourselves as we really are. That is where the true beauty lives.
