30 Bananas a Day!

Every Rose Started Life Buried in the Mud :)

One of the things I have noticed on my journey through life so far is that often the most magical, beautiful moments of our time here on Earth have come into being as a result of past events that were extremely challenging and sad.

So for me, an obvious example of this would be when I was sick. I went through nearly 2 decades of extreme ill health, excruciating pain, abuse, and starvation, and at the time this all seemed fairly pointless. What’s more, it seemed like that illness would be the end of my life.

But little did I know, it was really the beginning.

Everything that has resulted from that experience in the past few years has been incredibly fulfilling, peaceful, happy, and always interesting! I have met so many inspiring and truly good people, I have gained a new perspective on life, I have found courage to be my true self, and I have understood what it means to be both deeply content and always ready to find greater meaning, happiness, and wisdom.

And I can honestly say that I feel grateful for what happened to me. I would not change places with anyone else, because this is my life, the good and the bad, that cannot be divided or defined, and I have known true sorrow, and true joy, and I could not ask for more.

When difficulties arise in my life now, as they do for all of us, I remind myself of how unpromising the first years of my life were, and how sad I was then, and how happy I am now. It is good to remember that not only do the bad times pass, but they also are often the nourishment needed for a happy future.

For though the seeds may be poisonous, the blossom is beautiful, and the fruit is sweet :)

With love, and wishing you courage on this journey, Esperanza xxx
