Adversity is like a strong wind…

Life is a Highway

Adversity is a foe that presents itself with many faces.  Everyone has faced this opponent at some point, most often at our seemingly lowest moments.  Whether hardship is self-imposed or the result of an external force, we each process the encounter in our own unique way.

Occasionally, we break, crumbling in a dusty cloud.  Sometimes we bend and sway from the pressure like a willow bowing to the breeze.  At others we stand firm as a rock, unmoving and impervious.    And yet at still other times we push forward and break through, making it to “the other side” earning personal growth; like the flower that grows through a tiny crack in the concrete.  The tenacious will to survive.

Adversity is like a strong wind.  It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.
