Life isn’t always easy. In fact, it’s often quite the opposite. But maybe, just maybe, this journey we’re on isn’t meant to be easy. Maybe life isn’t about finding the easiest way to get from point A to point B. Maybe it’s about embracing the journey simply for what it is. Maybe tomorrow we’ll all be holding hands singing Kumbaya, but I highly doubt it. I would be willing to bet that, as life gets harder, we get stronger. We learn how to deal with the hardships life throws at us and face them with new outlooks. We learn to take on opportunities no matter how scary. We learn to listen to the advice of others even when we may not want to. We learn to work towards our goals and persevere through any obstacles we face. No one will be able to make your life any easier for you, but, as you grow, you become more able to get through the hardships and you learn to ask for support and help along the way. So, no, life isn’t easy. It never has been and it probably never will be. But, in all reality, should we even want it to be?
