Here’s a secret. Life isn’t always easy. It’s not always happy either. Anyone who tells you that is probably selling you something. The fact of the matter is that life is usually tough and tedious. It’s filled with a whole bunch of things you don’t want to do but have to do to just get by. There is probably never going to be a time when you are absolutely happy or perfectly content with your life. That’s just not how life  works. Life is hard, and there will be times you just hope to wake up and get through the next day.

But here’s the thing. If life was easy, you wouldn’t truly enjoy the happy moments. You’d take them for granted and wouldn’t savor them the way you do. No, life isn’t always easy, but its difficulties are what make the good moments that much better.
