Deleciously Accurate

I continue to enjoy the fortune cookies. Tonight’s reads “Prosperity makes friends; adversity tries them.” I know Josh and I have talked about this concept a lot – that it’s the struggle that brings people together, makes relationships strong, builds character in the individual and forces him to grow as a person. Does that mean we are born to struggle? No more than we are born to overcome those struggles and feel satisfied, happy, from having done so. Just as the best friendships are the ones that have seen hardships. The people you are exposed to the most, and stick around anyway, those are the keepers. It might be a stretch, but I’m inclined to say that a healthy amount of “adversity” builds trust. Perhaps we should all hope to struggle with those we admire most.

    Maybe the prosperity is a result of certain types of adversity. So, if they make it through the trying “adversity” they get to take part in the “prosperity”. Cookies for the win, dude!
