Most people experience growth through adversity some time in their lives. It's how you see it -- with what kind of perspective and expectations -- that makes all the difference in how things turn out.
However personal growth happens, I think if we see it with positive eyes, we'll be a lot more pleased with the result than if we had to be drug kicking, screaming and moaning all the way to our new destination.
Can you think of a time when a change came into your life? Did you accept it, deal with it, and make the best of things...or not?
