That’s true, nobody said it was easy, but somehow we have this notion ingrained in our public consciousness – life is not supposed to be so difficult. Um, ya…fail – it is. Whenever something bad happens or life isn’t just a box of chocolates, we think that’s not normal – reality check – it is. Life is difficult. Life is hard. Pain is necessary for growth. We need each other and we need God. So the next time I start hitting the slippery parts of this track of life I’m going to tell myself: ‘Nobody said it was easy’ but I’m going to add another phrase: ‘but it is worth it‘.
