The only bad experiences in life are the ones we do not learn from. Our hardest trials and tribulations are the events that shape us into the people we are. Growth comes out of our struggles. These simple concepts are the truth. Think back over your life. What has caused you to change? Was it that day at the beach or a week of vacation? What opened your eyes to a new way of life? When a door has closed hasn’t one always opened? What helped you to recognize you had to make a change? What motivates you?
