“I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living, or get busy dying”. – Andy Dufrense, The Shawshank Redemption
Last week, we thought through the meaning of how “Crisis” is written in Chinese. Two symbols, translating to “danger”, and “opportunity”.
A third word to add comes from the Greek “krisis”, where the English word originated from. In Greek, “krisis” translates to “choice”.
Adversity will change us, but *how* it changes is us the “krisis” – the choice. Are we choosing to learn from our challenges, leading to wisdom, growth, and depth? Or do we choose to become hardened and bitter?
