I came across this quote by C. S Lewis whilst looking for a front cover page for my new Filofax diary! If I’m being honest, the first thing that caught my attention was the pretty watercolour background…but there’s something about this quote that really hit home. Often when in the middle of a difficult situation my first thought is “why me”. But let’s be real, why not me! Friedrich Nietzsche said, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger” and I think C. S Lewis was on the same page. Through every trial we are able to learn new lessons and skills which equip us for what is yet to come. So if you’re going through a rough patch, just remember that it’s preparing you for even greater things.
