Dear Friend,

Life is full of paradoxical truths. Some examples: If you want to lead others, you need to serve others. If you give, you will receive. The harder you try to impress people, the less impressed they’ll be. The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know. And the best of times are often the worst of times.

Some version of that last one has come to mind several times in the last year, so it’s been helpful to remind myself of the rewards I’ve experienced in life by running toward adversity. There are those who advise us to run from adversity and others who will tell us to make the most of it when we can’t avoid it, but I believe there’s true value in seeking it.

“A certain amount of opposition is a great help to a man. Kites rise against not with the wind. Even a head wind is better than nothing. No man ever worked his voyage anywhere in a dead calm.”
— John Neal, “Enterprise and Perseverance,” Weekly Mirror, 1846
