Dealing with life

    I think sometimes we get caught in a trap, a way of thinking that leads us to believe that we will one day get to a place in life where everything is perfect. This quote should bring us all back to reality a bit.
 Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them.
As long as we are here on planet earth we are going to encounter challenges and problems everyday. Some problems will be big and some will be small. It is our ability and willingness to push through and continue "living" while dealing and coping with challenges that will determine whether we will have those wonderful moments that make life worth living in the end. If you are waiting to get everything OK so you can make that phone call, have that child, take that trip or chance for something new you probably never will. Usually at the end of ones life one thinks about maybe all the things that were left undone and left only talked and dreamed about. Don't do that. God gave us free will and gave us this life to live, so get out there and live and soak up life and all it has to offer even when life keeps throwing trials at you. When challenges come, and they will, keep living and keep moving and choose happiness and contentment.
Lots of love,

Love this quote. Such a wonderful view point to take regarding life. You are so right, things are never going to be perfect or problem free. We might as well get on with the business of living.

Thank you for writing about this. No, not everything will be perfect. There will be big and small problems. But finding contentment in God is a possibility. Even if we are very sad we can find peace in God.

Keep writing!

First time visiting here Kimberly from CBCE and just want to say thanks for the encouragement to not wait until we think a time is perfect before we do something. We walk with a God who makes our way perfect and as long as we lean on and trust in Him He will direct our paths.

Thanks Kimberly for sharing your life experience. Happiness isn't achieved alone since it takes others and a spiritual connection with God. I'm glad you posted your article on CBCE because you have a lot to share in your journey. Thanks for expressing yourself.
