“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.” Josh Billings
Prosperity doesn’t just happen out of the blue. Prosperity is something that is grown over time. Like the seasons in nature, I believe that some degree of exertion has to be put forth in order for the fullness of pleasure in life’s most treasured possessions can be realized. The fierceness of winter melts into the delicateness of springtime. The brutal heat of summer withers along the crisp trails of autumn. We long for times of abundant prosperity when we’ve suffered far too long with far too little. We bask in the comfortable richness offered to us by the fruits of our labor; never wanting to have to face leaner times again. What we may not realize is that prosperity, like the seasons is not necessarily found in our possessions, but rather, it is in the effort and determination it took to acquire them.
May your season of prosperity come and be enjoyed to the full.
Peace and love,
