The Beautiful Struggle

Life is a beautiful struggle. You wake up one day and its raining, no its pouring. Still you wake up and open your eyes, you roll over and you open the blinds. You sit up, get dressed and march into the storm. Head on you march. Through snow, wind, Rain, Hurricanes, forests, over hills and over walls. Obstacles all there to try and turn you around. Trying to get you to go back home, to retreat to the comfort of your bed. To give up and give in.

Yet, through all of it, you march forward. Through the snow and the rain. Over the mountains and walls. You fight through it all. You struggle. For what? To get to the otherside. To the sun and the warmth. Everyday people are faced with decisions or challenges. To say yes or say no? To go left or to go right? You may make the wrong choices in life, but the beauty is in the struggle. Through perseverance. I used to think that it was cliche' when people said what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. How wrong is that. Life, like love, is a mother fucker. It turns you around and bends you over sometimes. Yet, at the end of the day the struggle makes you stronger and wealthier. Its scary, but one hell of a ride. Life, it's a beautiful struggle.

wtf? who is this person tery and why is she peddling her drugs on your site?
anyways i like your post. as i get older i see that age old cliche that there is no substitute for hard work. you can either be reactive, or proactive, and i choose the latter. just gogogo, full steam ahead, and literally, whatever doesnt kill you makes you stronger.

Indeed -to the post and guns'n'baddus's comment.
People like to knock cliches, but they're around for a reason- they are applicable to life and can really help us sometimes. I definately advocate the "what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger" cliche. I've experience the truth in it a few times now, so I fully support it!
