“Two roads diverged in the woods, and I – I took the road less travelled by; And that has made all the difference...” exclaims Robert Frost.
You see life is not about pursuing the path of least resistance
Life is about enduring and finding those things (and people) worth suffering for.
Worth sacrificing something for.
Worth giving part of yourself to.
So the key then is not comfort, but resilience.
It’s not safety, it’s courage in the face of adversity.
It’s not in laying down, it’s in standing for something and pursuing it with everything you’ve got.
Because it’s in the pursuit of those things
Those things that matter
Those things of inherent and infinite value; that provides your life with meaning
It’s those things that make your life worth living.
If you’re looking for easy, then you’re missing the point
There’s no growth in easy
There’s no opportunity to develop your character or strength of will in easy
There’s no real purpose grounded in easy.
