there is more understanding and beauty in life when the glaring sunlight is softened by the patterns of shadows.
there is more depth in a relationship that has weathered some storms.
Experience that never disappoints or saddens or stirs up feeling is a bland experience with little challenge or variation of color.
it’s when we experience confidence and faith and hope that we see materialize before our eyes this builds up within us a feeling of inner strength, courage, and security.
We are all personalities that grow and develop as a result of our experiences, relationships, thoughts, and emotions.
We are the sum total of all the parts that go into the making of a life.”
