I shared this story with a peer at my day job and she said, "Wow Michael, even the immigrants who came to our country arrived with something."
If you are going through tough times right now, today's story is for you. Just as nature has four seasons, we also have seasons we must cycle through. Spring always follows Winter. The sun always rises after a sunset. And you, my friend, will get through tough times.
Here are three ideas to help you handle tough times:
- Everyone on this planet goes through all four seasons from birth to death. The ones who do the best are the ones who see the lesson in every season and who believe all things will be new again.
- Appreciate the season you are in now; it has a lesson to teach you, hope to give you and opportunity to provide you.
- There are many generations who came before you with less resources, less technology and less amenities than you have today. They endured tough times so that you can be here today. Remember the sacrifices they made when they arrived with not much more than a dream.
