“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for extraordinary destinies.”
I love the encouragment this message sends. Sure enough, if we live in this world, we will be challenged by a few setbacks. The good news is, these moments do not define us and they certainly are not the end of the story. Reflecting on my own life, I have recognized a few have actually been the catalyst to something better.
It is important to note, the difficulty of these times should not be minimized, and they certainly are not meant to be walked through alone. It is my hope that should you be experiencing some kind of “hardship” you find peace in knowing you do not have to do so by yourself.
If you are up against a situation that feels overwhelming or is creating a level of anxiety or stress that seems unmanageable, I encourage you to seek help. Should it be with me, I would be honored to provide compassion, counsel and guidance through the process.
