Troubles

When you fail to appreciate your problems for the learning experiences they are, you’ll continue to have them. The challenges in your life, are lessons waiting to be learned. And wait they will -- until you have learned them. They’ll stick around as long as it takes for you to learn from them.

Learn from your troubles, appreciate them, and they’ll go away. When you’ve learned the lesson they’re there to teach, they’re no longer a problem.

Be thankful for the challenges in your life. Without them, you would not grow. Learn eagerly the lessons they’re meant to teach, and grow to rise above them.

Trouble is a caring and persistent teacher. It never leaves your side until you have learned its lesson. Let your troubles teach you, and they’ll no longer be able to reach you.

— Ralph Marston
