Your life is a story that is unfolding. Some chapters are better than others. No single chapter alone defines you or the story of your life. It’s hard to stay focused and positive when a difficult chapter or season of your life continues longer than you’d like. Paradoxically, it is during those times of pressure that the possibility for growth and change are created. If it weren’t for time, pressure, and depth, some of the most valuable elements on Earth wouldn’t exist. The process is often unpleasant but, in the end, something rare and precious emerges. It may not seem like it now, but in the greater scheme, this is just a brief chapter in your life. Good or bad, this chapter alone doesn’t encapsulate the entirety of your life; it is part of a bigger, grander story taking place. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and live a great story!
