Getting Burned

Optimism Thought of the Week

Getting Burned

We may never realize how great we have it, until we know what it’s like being burned for the first time. Wisdom may not be from the one that is walking alongside of you, but with certainty it’s from the one that has traveled, to where you are headed.

That very first time that we are burned, it forces us to come to one conclusion, whether we gain wisdom from it, or we continue to burn ourselves. If we choose wisdom, this allows us to share our story with others, to prevent someone else from getting burned.

Can we truly say how great something is or how bad something may be, if we never have experienced it ourselves?
