African Proverb

Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors.

The Importance of Bad Times

We all want things to go perfectly all the time. That's natural. But it's also natural that nothing ever goes perfectly all the time.

It's in times of stormy seas that we learn our most important skills. We need to remind ourself that it's alright to try something and fail, it's alright to feel bad when things are going wrong. Things will eventually change, no storm lasts forever.
