Character Building: The Irony

Each time we have to work harder and humbler than we feel we ever should — an opportunity to build character.

Each time we stumble from blindspot to blindspot in our thoughts and actions — an opportunity to build character.

Each time we react impulsively, falter in our commitments, or hurt another – an opportunity to build character.

Each time a sick, sincere, or lost soul reaches out to us — an opportunity to build character.

Each time our value is discredited, diminished, or ignored — an opportunity to build character.

Each time a roadblock and obstacle completely thwarts our desires — an opportunity to build character.

And we think there aren’t enough opportunities in our life… how very ironic!
