Life is not smooth like people want it be. If life was that easy, then life would not be as exciting. There would not be times to grow or learn either. If life were easy, we would not know what the most exciting times in life were. Also if it were easy, there would not be a place for spirituality.
Life is basically like a roller coaster because of the twists, turns, ups, and downs. The twists and turns happen when something unexpected happens.Those times can be rough and hurtful, but the best way to plough through those is to have faith. They do allow you to grow and become a better person. Life is messy, but just remember that life is precious. Use the twists and turns to grow no matter what.
The good and bad times work like magnets. You cannot have one without the other. If you do not have bad times in your life, you would not know what the good times were. In life you have to be vulnerable and emotional. The bad times help you appreciate the good times even more. You cannot have sad without joy because you can never separate them. Live life to the fullest and treat every moment as if its your last. No Day But Today!
