Life is not one straight path from here to there, although most of us wish it were like that. If it were, however, we would never get to where we could go or become who we were meant to become. At much as we do not like it, part of learning and growing and living is straining and failing and struggling. No one has ever climbed a mountain of any significant height without some struggle along the way. Every part of your journey is necessary. While it may not seem like one part is connected to another part, it very much is.
LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.
