Beyoncé was hit by a series of devastating blows after suffering multiple miscarriages before her first daughter was born in 2012, but rather than let the tragedy defeat her, the 38-year-old chose to learn invaluable life lessons from the experience.

"I began to search for deeper meaning when life began to teach me lessons I didn't know I needed. Success looks different to me now," she said in a new feature article that appears in the latest edition of Elle. "I learned that all pain and loss is in fact a gift. Having miscarriages taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to someone else."

Beyoncé first opened up about her miscarriages in the 2013 HBO documentary "Life Is But a Dream," in which she described the experience as "the saddest thing" she had ever been through. Welcoming baby Blue Ivy into the world was a blessing for her and husband Jay-Z. It also gave the iconic singer a new sense of purpose.

In "Life Is But a Dream," Beyoncé said it felt like God was giving her a chance to be part of a miracle. "You're playing a part in a much bigger show," she said at the time, according to the Daily Mail.

Six years later, her tone has not changed.

"I had Blue, and the quest for my purpose became so much deeper," Beyoncé said in the interview published in Elle. "I died and was reborn in my relationship, and the quest for self became even stronger. It's difficult for me to go backwards. Being 'number one' was no longer my priority. My true win is creating art and a legacy that will live far beyond me. That's fulfilling."
