What comes to mind when I say the word bittersweet? It is the idea that there is bitter within sweet and sweet within the bitter. That the joys in life come with a little brokenness and that the darkness can have even the slightest glimpse of light.
I encourage you to adopt this mentality of bittersweet and take it a step further. Be thankful for both, the bitter and the sweet. For the bitter creates change and growth, while the sweet celebrates accomplishments and goodness.
