    **”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 is 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?

    Danger, Opportunity, Choice.
