8. "The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all." - The Emperor (Mulan)

2019 will bring some trouble, but our goal this year is to take that trouble and create something positive out of it. Trials give us opportunities to learn, grow, and progress. Be thankful for the trials and use them to create a triumph.
