Growing Pains

I often believe that without troubles we would miss out on a lot of opportunities to grow. When times are hard and you feel like the weight of the world couldn’t bring you down any farther…. Remember that all painful struggles can be transformed into beautiful self-growth experiences.

You might think to yourself:

 “Some people have it so easy.“

 “Other people don’t have to deal with crappy situations like this…Why do I? ” Honestly? Why Me?

If you ask me.. I would never give up any of the times where life was tough! I don’t want to be a person who has everything handed to them and life is as easy as the breeze. I know that what life puts in front of me, I can handle it. Like they say “What won’t kill you, will only make you stronger.” There is so much truth to that!!!!!

Even though these times may not be the happiest, or most peaceful. I trust that there is a reason. I trust that I will grow. I trust that I will be stronger because of it. I myself trust in God.  I know that not all my followers have the same beliefs as me…but I trust in their journeys and beliefs as well and the humble peace that comes from growing pains.

Why? Because I know that those times stretch me in ways that make me uncomfortable but those are the times where I learn the most. They are also where I realize how grateful I am for all the good moments, experiences, people, and truth I do have in my life. They make me grateful for who I am and who I have become because of them.

“Wherefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake for when I am weak, then I am strong.” <3
