I tweeted about this just the other day, but my favourite quote is definitely from a poem by Yrsa Daley-Ward, one of my favourite poets.
It goes like this…
This has stuck with me ever since I read it and it has become extremely profound to me. Every time I’m going through a trying situation, it comes to mind and manages to make me feel a little bit better about everything.
Because life isn’t perfect. Shit happens. And even when we’re not aware of it, it’s going through these tough situations and overcoming them that makes us who we are. A little stronger. A little wiser. A little rougher around the edges. And there’s beauty to be found in that.
Sometimes tough times are simply tough times and there’s no beauty to be found in that at all. And that’s ok too.
