Gloriously difficult

Life is gloriously difficult. The universe is wonderfully complex.

Every new discovery opens the door for even more discoveries. Every challenge you work through enables you to move on to even greater and more fulfilling challenges.

Instead of fighting against the difficulty, celebrate it. Embrace the challenges and you’ll find profound value in them.

Instead of being frustrated and confused by the complexity, dive in and experience its richness. Though you’ll never understand it all, you can always understand more.

Circumstances change from moment to moment, and life is continually renewed. Though changes can often be painful, a life with no change at all would be unbearably empty.

With its many ups and downs and twists and turns, life is happening all around you. Remember how truly fortunate you are, take it all in, and make your own special greatness.

— Ralph Marston
