In the course of our lives, all of us get dealt some heavy blows. While it is okay and even necessary to feel sorry for ourselves for a while, there is a point when we have to move out of that and decide what we want to do with the experience. Do we want to use it as an obstacle or as a stepping stone? I personally prefer to use it as a stepping stone, propelling myself forward in life. So what will you do? Are you generous of heart enough to use those really difficult lessons to your advantage or do you allow them to stem your growth?
