Life is full of ups and downs. If you are anything like me, more than once you have prayed to God to take away some of the low spots.
I just realized that the experience I am trying to avoid is actually a life-altering opportunity that shaped me into a better person! So yell it loud that "Hit me with your best shot!!"
Knowing this after the fact didn't make it any easier, but looking back I realized I am much better now for having endured it. Besides, I would never have realized how high I have gotten without the perspective of how low I had actually been.
The real lesson to be learned is that we need to face our challenges head-on with grace, style and conviction. Therefore, I will face all my challenges in this semester with confidence and happiness!
So the next time your life starts to resemble a roller coaster, climb into the front seat, throw your arms in the air, and enjoy the ride!
