We are tested in this life. We are challenged by that which we cannot control. We are made humble by what beats us. We are made stronger by our victories. We are made better in our humanity when we accept our losses with grace and cherish our victories quietly.
We are tested by our circumstances. Do we dwell or do we excel? Can we withstand the pain in order to grow into better people or do we wither and wilt? Do we become victims or victors? Do we allow pain to be a teacher or do we remain stuck in the depths of self pity?
We are tested in every situation in our lives to see the joy or feel the sorrow. We are tested in all things great and small to learn important life lessons about love, trust, faith and attitude.
We are tested.
How we respond to these tests tells us who we really are.
