One Vowel Makes a Difference

Adversity vs Diversity

I was wondering about those two words this morning and the vast difference of their meaning.
A simple vowel change and there you have it! A completely different meaning…
Adversity:
A state of hardship or affliction; misfortune.
Diversity:
The condition of having or being composed of differing elements.

“The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It means understanding that each individual is unique, and recognizing our individual differences. These can be along the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies. It is the exploration of these differences in a safe, positive, and nurturing environment. It is about understanding each other and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the rich dimensions
contained within each individual.”

It seems to me, ones openness to being diverse (acceptance and respect of others) certainly makes you stronger to any adversity (hardship) life may throw your way!
Shine your love and light, embrace Diversity…

Adversity or diversity? Which one will you choose to live by today?

In awe of wonder, in awe of vowels…
