Beauty From Pain

You might want to grab your scuba gear, because today we are going to go a little deep….

Life is hard sometimes.

This is a fact that I have learned, interestingly enough, the hard way.

Each of us will face hard times in our life. There will be times of hurt and pain when we don’t know how….

or even if….

we can ever.

go.

on.

When the thought of taking the next breath seems almost too much.

But the painful times of our life have a purpose. It is in those times that we have the opportunity to grow as a person. It is in those times that we become more of the person we were created to be. Many times we don’t have clear answers as to why we go through things. But the one way we can guarantee that the pain was not in vain is when we take a step back and look at how we can learn and move forward through it. It’s tough, but we have to keep going, keep trying, and keep moving forward.

I don’t know what you are going through in your life right now, but know that there is a good purpose for it. Even when it doesn’t make sense. Every day is a new day and a new opportunity to turn things around. When we grow through these times, we develop a beauty that comes from within. A beauty that doesn’t fade with age or wrinkles or spots. A beauty that doesn’t need makeup or skin care. A beauty that becomes a part of who we are.  Pain can make us bitter or make us beautiful.  It’s our choice.
