So often, the trail to success or peace is littered with tears, failure, setbacks, discomfort, or trials of some sort. That’s just life.
But if you make it through, all of those little setbacks and unforeseen events become worthwhile parts of the journey. They become lessons. Tools. Bridges. All of those failures become the bricks that line your path to something greater.
What matters is that you did it, you endured, you persevered, despite the odds stacked against you. It’s impossible to get through life without a little mud on your shirt, without a few cuts and scrapes. But if you’re still standing in the end, there’s value in that. Keep charging forward.
