I’m tired of people thinking things will be easy.
I feel like people think “once I get my dream job” or “once I meet the right person” or “once I find God” that life will be easy.
But that isn’t true.
Being in love with your soulmate will not be easy.
Discovering who you are will not be easy.
Being caring and open will not be easy.
But the thing is—you will not be satisfied with an easy life.
The challenge is what makes life all the better.
Here’s the thing: life is hard.
But don’t ever let it stop you from doing what you want.
life being difficult probably means you are doing something right.
