When life gets tough, it's not so easy to see it as a gift. When we are hurt or bad things happen, life seems to be anything but a gift.
This is a world where we come to learn, to grow and to understand. The only way to do these things is by living through good times and bad, in pressure and in happiness. It's a human perception that moving away from rough things is what we need. And yes, that is what we need, but only after we've addressed the issues presented to us.
Life is a test and a testament. A test of whether or not we can get through hardship and a testament as to what we've conquered.
This piece I created speaks of the gift of life. Through pain and turmoil we see and learn about meaning in even the littlest things. Life is a gift: of growth, learning, seeking, finding and understanding.
