The Pain of Hardship.

“Seek and ye shall find, ask and you shall receive, knocketh and the door will be open unto you.”
Sometimes in life we are brought into situations that are unexpected, inconceivable, and truly daunting. It is hard to see and understand why difficulties come about in our lives when we least expect it. It’s alarming when something happens that completely changes how you feel, changes what you’re doing, or what you're thinking. Those are just the initial feelings. The ones under the second layer are even worse. You start blaming yourself for being so stupid, and not doing things better, not foreseeing this disaster, pothole, misstep, hiccup beforehand. You thought you knew better by now than to make these kind of mistakes. You should know better; you should be better.

Sometimes in life we are given the same challenges until we have learned the lesson. It doesn’t matter how many times it has happened. It doesn’t matter the last time it actually happened. What matters is what was taken from the experience.
 Did you reflect on the incident and hear the message that was trying to reach you? Did you learn anything about yourself from that scenario? Have you grown or are you continuing to do same thing expecting a different set of outcomes next time around? 
The laws of life do not change; they do not waiver
They are steady and true. 
They are not affected by the trends of time or altered by the light of day. The laws of the land will be here to better you, expand your heart and get you that much closer to embracing your life. It is here to teach---- nothing more and nothing less. Take heed to the lessons life throws your way, even the soft ones, because each one has a story to tell about you and where you’re going. It is much easier to turn away from the pain of hardship, but the challenge is to immerse yourself into it. See it from all sides. Grasp on the message and understand, truly understand its teaching, for in that moment you allow yourself to grow. Without growth there is no life.
