Facing it, always facing it, that’s the way to get through. Face it.
The Anatomy of Conflict: If there is no communication then there is no respect. If there is no respect then there is no caring. If there is no caring then there is no understanding. If there is no understanding then there is no compassion. If there is no compassion then there is no empathy. If there is no empathy then there is no forgiveness. If there is no forgiveness then there is no kindness. If there is no kindness then there is no honesty. If there is no honesty then there is no love. If there is no love then God doesn't reside there. If God doesn't reside there then there is no peace. If there is no peace then there is no happiness. If there is no happiness ----then there IS CONFLICT BECAUSE THERE IS NO COMMUNICATION!
I love to walk. Walking is a spiritual journey and a reflection of living. Each of us must determine which path to take and how far to walk; we must find our own way, what is right for one may not be for another. There is no single right way to deal with late stage cancer, to live life or approach death, or to walk an old mission trail.
The prettiest flowers earn their honor in the ugliest dirt.
Every challenge, every adversity, contains within it the seeds of opportunity and growth.
A diamond earns its sparkle from the pressure it endures.
Hope is holding on to the promises of God.
There's always a lesson to be learnt from adversity.
Almost everybody needs ideas to live by including hope and faith in order to tolerate the hardships of existence.
When you experience loss, people say you’ll move through the 5 stages of grief…. Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance ….. What they don’t tell you is that you’ll cycle through them all every day.
Adversity presents itself in various forms from mild to the intensive extreme. Therefore, each form necessitates a different approach that matches or exceeds the intensity in the moment.
A persons true character is only revealed under adversity.
Progress is not gauged by improvement in the comfort of our situation. Progress happens when the situation is adverse and we remain normal.
