“Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has.”
— Billy Graham
Adversity builds strength — if we allow it to.
Take the life of the monarch butterfly.
After lying in its chrysalis for 10-14 days, it starts to break out.
(At this point, it’s a sopping wet, wrinkled specimen.)
It starts to wriggle, twist and struggle.
Its goal: break out of that prison shell and fly.
Watching it, you might be tempted to help the poor winged creature.
But if you did, you would injure it for life. It needs the struggle.
Through the twists and turns, it is forcing fluid into its wings and gaining strength.
So, the next time you face a challenge, remember the monarch butterfly.
Struggle makes us stronger.
Comment if you can 🙂
