I remember a specific moment, watching my grandmother hang the clothes on the line, and her saying to me, ‘you are going to have to learn to do this,’ and me being in that space of awareness and knowing that my life would not be the same as my grandmother’s life.
All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life now that I am old I know that it is.
Life is not what it’s supposed to be. It’s what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.
