My Malaysian mom Nyah, always said that during the challenging times of our lives is when our character is built, and we are getting stronger from the inside out. Everything has a season. Everything has its time.
My late Southern Belle mom Eleanora, always reminded me over the years that life is not always as smooth as we would like it to be. It is how we step up to face the sudden, unanticipated challenges facing us that truly builds and forges our overall personal character.
If we are aware and mindful enough to allow this to happen, our faith can then lead us to the knowledge that everything is meant to make us better and to build our character in all areas of our lives.
She went on to say, “Our charm and personality may open doors for us; however, it is our character that keeps them open.”
