All My Adversity

My whole life I’ve been drawn to a good quote. From a young age I quickly learned that carefully selected words strung together can generate immense power within the human spirit. And a good quote can speak to the soul when no other words can seem to do the trick.

Lately I have found myself being drawn to particular quotes over and over. I suppose they are really speaking to my current season of life. One quote that has been a favorite recently is “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me.”

This quote by Walt Disney is complete truth for me. The adversity I have faced in life has strengthened and changed me. I am thankful for what I’ve been through because I am thankful for the person I am today. The person I am today is the person I want to walk into the future as.

This quote from Walt reminds me that everyone faces adversity in life. But what is not stated but is clearly implied is that what matters is what we do with the adversity.

I, like Walt, am choosing to use it.
