Everything is a challenge, and to be truthful, I wouldn’t have it any other way

“I didn’t deserve this!”

“Life isn’t fair!”

“If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn’t be in this mess.”

The list goes on as to how people feel that they have been screwed and fail to take personal responsibility for their actions.

Myself? I relish it. It is frustrating and invigorating at the same time. It makes the spice to life.

Without conflict, life would be boring. Conflict brings about lessons to be learned from.

Such is life.

Ignore it at your own peril.

What are your lessons?

Don't know if this counts as a lesson or not.. I'm usually shy and not very social, well yesterday my best friend invited me over with some of his friends to a cafe. We were having a great time and in the middle of our dinner a man with a gun walked in the restaurant and mugged us. I could've died, so now I feel so grateful and happy to be alive, of course I'm still a little anxious but all in all I was lucky and looking at the positive side. Yeah, we learn even where we think we should just blame others. Whenever I hear "if life gives you lemons..." I think "you might have heard it wrong, life gives you LESSONS no lemons" haha
