The message I received today was "Appreciate, appreciate, appreciate." Appreciate what? As I connected more deeply with those words, I understood that I need to appreciate my journey. Everything that I have experienced up to now has made me who I am today, the blissful times, the mundane times, and the challenging times.
Sometimes, though, it's hard to appreciate the struggles, especially if I'm going through them right now. So, today's message was timely, and it helped me to remember that growing into the best version of myself is not a smoothly paved road. I am reminded of a quote by Henry Ford, "When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it."
