Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. ~ Joshua J. Marine
Shitty news came your way
or too much stress
with life today?
Well, which of your best days already lived,
your favorite days,
did not start with one or all of the above?
you normally have to overcome some sort of obstacle.
You finished a marathon?
That shit ain’t easy.
You jumped out of an airplane?
Fear is a freak-out.
Landed that dream job?
That’s a stressful application.
You finally won the big game?
Failure has followed previous attempts.
The epic event you planned totally backfired…but worked?
Perfection isn’t good for anyone.
Life’s little obstacles carry accomplishment waiting to happen.
That is their purpose.
Their true hidden potential.
You can’t reach peak satisfying moments of achievement
without a challenge to overcome.
So embrace those obstacles.
Breathe because they’ll pass.
When they do,
you might find yourself having the best day of your life.
