Throughout our life, it is bound that there are periods of challenges that we must face, but the real challenge is how we grow and learn from overcoming them. Being naive, innocent children, we ignorantly believed that life was going to be simple and effortless. Oh, we were far from correct, we can only dream for life to be that easy. My life, in particular, has been filled with countless, tiring ups and downs. It felt like I was in an endless roller coaster of obstacles. As we mature from being children into adults, we will continue to face countless hurdles that only get bigger and more consequential. I would do anything to go back in time when I thought learning division was complicated as untying a series of knots. To when our obstacles we faced were insignificant and foolish. Thankfully, life isn’t a game where we can only have one chance.
Life was never meant to be easy, it was meant to be a journey filled with quests, a journey where we must travel through no matter how bad the obstructions are ahead of us. Everyone in their life has their ups, downs, and plateaus; just like a roller coaster. And we can’t stop that roller coaster, it’s the cycle of life. In the cycle of life, we are taught that even our failures are better than our victories. Life doesn’t punish us for our downfalls, but it rewards us for our own successes. Obstacles shouldn’t be viewed as a burden, but rather as a blessing and a stepping stone to our success in the future. Obstacles give us a chance to grow and nourish. Behind everyone’s faces, lies a story. A story of them facing their own adversities, and we all have our own stories. Life will continue to trip us with hurdles.
