Thoughts for the Day - Adversity... How to Deal with the Funk

Good Morning,

Adversity, one of the many things that connects us all as part of the human condition.  How do we deal with it when it enters our life?  We each handle it as differently as each of us is unique in this world.  Going through these challenges can be a test of your personal fortitude, and your ability to make it through these tough times.

As I was talking to a friend about some common challenges we were each facing, I stopped for a moment to listen to myself.  I had a negative bent in my voice, and appeared to be whining about my current predicament.  We all have challenges in this life, but we also have blessings and things that cause us to be joyful.  Reading these quotes helped me gain some perspective on refocusing my mindset, and helped me get out of the funk I was feeling.  I hope you find them helpful as you go through your day.  Take care.


“I love those who can smile in trouble...”
Leonardo da Vinci

“We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world”
Helen Keller

 “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."

Anne Bradstreet

 “Our most significant opportunities will be found in times of greatest difficulty.”
Thomas S. Monson
