I suppose sooner or later in the life of everyone comes a moment of trial. We, all of us have our particular devil who rides us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end.
– Daphne Du Maurier, Rebecca
Adversity – noun: difficulties, misfortune
We all face adversity from time to time. The road is not always a smooth one. The degree of difficulty and the weight of misfortune will vary and it can be quite disheartening.
Yet, we will pass through. One way or another we will pass through. Who will we be coming out on the other side? Ideally we want to come out stronger, wiser and more centered, but adversity leave us at a lost, losing a piece of our inner being. Adversity can affect our psyche, our spiritual and physical well-being. Perspective is the key.
And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.

Adversity will come, how you approach it is solely your decision. Don’t believe you have to pay a toll to cross the bridge. When you believe that it will be well on the other side then the bridge to that point will open. Pray, meditate, envision it. Adversity should be nothing more than a stumbling block, if that, on your life’s journey.
Regardless of the external an internal forces, never give up on You.
Stay inspired and keep rising.
