“Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant.”
~ Horace (65-8 BC) Roman Poet
When you are at your worst emotionally and physically, you tend to find something that has been hidden deep inside you that you never knew you had — the wherewithal to work your way through the pain you are so burdened by. Like anything that has a luster to it, the process of getting that shine that is so appealing requires many years of wear and tear, and pain and suffering. So, always remember that when you’re experiencing discomfort, agony, sorrow, loneliness, displeasure and turmoil, just realize that you are getting closer to discovering the treasure that lies within you. Once found, the sparkle and awe that people now see in you will bring so much pleasure, strength, hope, and appeal to not only yourself but to those who can see the treasure within you. Have you found the treasure within you yet?
