Does life ever get easier ?

Well to say ''yes !'', wouldn't really be accurate. Saying ''it doesn't necessarily get easier, it just gets different'', would be more accurate. As we go through life, the ups and downs, the good times and hard times, the gains and losses, everything is what got us to who we are today. If life remained easy we would not know we could ever be as knowledgeable, strong, determined, or capable as we know ourselves to be today.

We may be a good person, but it is always our destiny to improve and fine tune, to evolve continuously, and how could that possibly happen if we are not pushed to our limits from time to time.

It can seem exhausting at times, frustrating, maddening, sad, confusing, even depressing, but we are never given more than we can handle. If things seem to be getting you to a point of break down, here is something that may help, so long as it doesn't interfere with your learning process and evolution. Try praying for grace.

Grace is a time in life where you can really take things in, the small things. You are able to stop and smell the roses for a while. You feel as though you are receiving a bit of a break from your normal go, go, go routine. Remember grace will always be there, but there is always work to be done and to shy away from it for too long, definitely does not not make it easier. In fact it usually makes it worse, as it will surface and repeat whatever work you are avoiding, or have not come to realize you must do, in order to evolve onto something different.

We will always be pushed to our limits on occasion, sometimes for extended periods of time, but this is something you will eventually come to be thankful about, for every time we push through an obstacle, or climb over another hurdle that life has placed in front of us, we become consciously aware in those moments and the moments that follow, of how we are so much more capable than we give ourselves credit for.

When we learn to see the hard times as opportunities to grow, the hard times seem less hard and make a little more sense.

So does it get easier ?   No. not really, it just gets ''different !!''
