Every bump along the road is trying to shape you into something better; every tear, every cry, every bruise, every sigh, every piece of broken heart, is trying to make you wiser, stronger, more resilient, more empathetic, more tolerant, and more understanding.
We don’t grow from the good times, we grow from hardship. The sooner you acknowledge this, the sooner those difficulties become an opportunity to show what you’re made of, a chance to learn something new, a test of your personal evolution.
Humanity as a whole is currently undergoing one of these tests. It’s a mental test, a moral test, a physical and most of all, a spiritual test.
Our courage, our resolve, our common sense and our faith are being put to the test. Many will fail. Whoever des not open their eyes soon and transcends the lies, will pay (is paying) the ultimate price.
It’s a harsh wake up call, the alarm bells had been ringing for a long time, the signs were up to warn us, the ugly truth lay right there staring back at us but we were at best, too innocent to see, and at worse too cynical, too corrupted, too lazy and too lost to face it.
The time for excuses is over, we are fast approaching our reckoning time, and there will be no hiding behind ignorance or possessions, no pushing blame to others, no rain check.
Be grateful therefore if the hardship and pain you have endured thus far, have made you become someone aware of this reckoning. You stand a far greater chance to make it through the storm.
