Challenges are how we grow.

Oh, nobody likes to suffer, nobody likes pain, nobody likes problems, but it’s the way we face these things that define who we are, and as such suffering, pain and problems are things we need even when we don’t want them.

Into every life, after all, a little rain must fall.

And once we get to the end of our hopefully full, rich lives, it won’t be the easy times we remember. It will be the troubles, and how we overcame them…

…which is why, unlikely though it might seem, one day you’ll thank me.


  1. It sounds like somebody is about to cause some trouble!

  2. Reminded me of The Giver actually, at least up till the ominous ending!
