Epiphany: How Adversity Can Be A Gift

“Amidst the messy carbon phases of life, adversity can polish you to be the shiny gem you were meant to become.”

For years I made collages out of magazine clips to express my creative side.  One of my all-time favorite collages had clock images.

When I got laid off of one of my first jobs, it took me two years to notice that the date in the image of a watch in this collage was the date I got laid off. Under it was a Bible quote that said, “God makes all things perfect in time.”

As a psychotherapist, this is what I often use to reassure those who haven’t had the hope injection of an epiphany yet ~ life is always in some stage of a process to evolve you. It helps to realize that in the midst of the messy carbon phases of life, adversity can polish you to be the shiny gem you were meant to become.
