Broken Places

“The world breaks everyone; then some grow strong in the broken places.” – Ernest Hemingway

I love this quote, and never hearing it before I immediately thought of the importance of reframing our experiences that could be termed as negative. If you fall down do you lay there and complain to every passerby or do you pick yourself up, and say “isn’t that interesting, I wonder what happens next?”
