Overcome The Adversity

overcome-the-adversity-1

Being a parent can be trying, being a parent in difficult times, even more-so, being a single parent in trying times… Well that is something all together different. If you are struggling, as we all do some times, in parenting, in difficulty, in life, remember that this too shall pass and don’t forget:

It is true that adversity is the best teacher. Without experiencing adversity we fail to grow, we fail to learn. And while I am hesitant to say I welcome adversity, I am however able to appreciate it, in a place where I used to dread its instructions. It has, truth be told, become an old friend who’s weathered time with me, and has been my instructor.

Where I uses to rebuke it’s comings, I now welcome it, if I cannot shake it away. I embrace it like a brother and hold it dear, knowing it’s rewards will soon, far outweigh its sorrows. For without adversity we are but beggars for wisdom, in an otherwise un-lovable world of poppers and vagabonds: well-travelled, but none the wiser.

hold to its keeping, forsake not it’s instructions. Sit at its feet and let it teach you, for with adversity, soon comes wisdom. Soon too, comes joy.
