Life is full of ups and downs, that is just the way it is for everyone.
When things are going poorly, we get tunnel vision and get bogged down. We believe this is how life will ALWAYS be.
Think of a tide. It makes its way to shore. You watch it as it inches closer and closer only to have it drift back to the sea.
Difficult times are just like that. They roll in and then make their way back out.
Through our difficulty and challenges we find strength and gain knowledge. Look at every single difficult time in life as a chance to learn something.
