“You’re gonna be happy”, said life, “but first I’ll make you strong”.

We have all been knocked down in life.   In order to be strong you have to endure heartache, loss and failure.  Once you live through the pain and disappointment you realize you are a survivor.   The definition of survivor is a person who copes well with difficulty in their life.

I have had my fair share of difficulties and failures which I’m grateful for. It means I’m living life and taking risks.  Most of these failures became blessings.  Because the lessons I learned were extremely valuable.  I would not be a successful woman, wife or mother if I didn’t go through the heartaches and headaches of life.

Don’t be afraid to express yourself, be vulnerable and reach for the stars.  Even if things don’t work out it will shape you and make you stronger.   Stronger to love, and live life to its fullest.

Readers do you agree that life difficulties have made you a stronger person?  Please share your comments.  So those who are hurting right now will learn that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  And nothing worth having comes easy.
