A Series of Experiences

Tuesday July 17, 2012 #437

“Life is a series of experiences, each of which makes us bigger, even though it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and griefs which we endure help us in our marching onward.”

 ~Henry Ford

Unfortunately we are not born wise.  Wisdom requires time to have experiences, reflect upon them, to learn and grow.  Yes, we must experience pain and grief and sorrow… as well as joy, beauty, and love.  Each experience enriches us – but only if we take a moment to reflect upon it and learn.  From this reflection comes true wisdom.
