I think we can all take this quote to heart and apply it to only the bigger picture struggles we are a part of, but also those individualistic kinds that take place within and around.
We will, undoubtedly, face hardship.
Mistakes. Failure. Defeats. Blows to the face.
Some will hurt a little.
Others will hurt a lot.
We will go through periods that seem impossible.
It is but the game of life we’re all entrusted to play.
There is no easy.
There is no instruction manual.
There are guides and the like.
And there is such a thing as ‘easier’…
But easy? No. for no one.
We must overcome, iterate, dig deep and dig our heels in.
Push forward when we have to.
Take a step back when it calls for it.
Keep focused on what we’re doing and where we are headed.
We will fall short, often.
Yet we so often rise again with new vigor and more.
