Hi everyone! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve been really busy with my job and making lifestyle changes to become a healthier and fitter me.

Refiner’s Fire: Four Lessons

Gold, like other precious metals, goes through a refining process in order to extract the pure metal from its ore. This process of refining involves extreme heat and extreme pressure. In the end, the impurities are removed and the pure and precious gold is left.

As humans, we can also be resilient like gold. We can undergo very grueling, challenging and painful experiences and end up coming out stronger and better than before. Trials are hard…..really hard. But we have the opportunity to either choose to make the situation break us or choose to let it refine us like gold.
