Bittersweet sweetness

“What was hard to bear is sweet to remember.”

— Portuguese proverb

Sweetness isn’t always so sweet when life serves you a bunch of lemons. And some of us get bushels full of lemons too! It’s only after you realize how sour life can be that can you fully appreciate just how sweet life can be. Unfortunately, pain is always with us in life, so we must endure it knowing that one day the pain will be sweetened with success, joy, rewards, strength, healing, accomplishment, and satisfaction. Always remember that a little sweetness on the tongue overwhelms even the sourest foods or drinks. The same applies in life when facing difficulties we must bear. Oh, how sweet that is!
