Aspects of a life well lived

Tuesday November 6, 2012 #469

 

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.”

 

~Helen Keller

 

It may sound trite, but the quote is true.  The challenges we face are necessary aspects of a life well lived, of the path to wisdom, and of the building of real character.  No one expects you to enjoy challenges, suffering, and pain.  However, it is entirely your responsibility to view such occurrences with the perspective necessary to allow learning, growth, and personal development.  It really is a choice you can, and must make for yourself and to benefit the people around you.
