Always a nice reminder that even during challenging times, there is something to be learned. It is so easy to become consumed with stressful situations that I forget to look at the big picture. Situations that are difficult are usually the ones that are opportunities for the most growth. I am not going to shy away from seas that are hard to navigate, because I know that it will make me a better captain.
On a smaller scale, it reminds me not to be overly-critical of myself, or my artwork, because I am constantly learning and practicing and improving.
