Growing Pains


Being uncomfortable builds character, integrity, endurance and strength. It’s more than okay to not have what you want all the time. It’s okay to feel pain and all the different emotions and problems that come with life. These instances make us who we are. These circumstances make us stronger.




It’s okay to STRUGGLE. This builds perseverance. You can’t get what you want all the time, and you shouldn’t. The times in life where we’re uncomfortable and really have to think and plan for a way to come out on top makes us better people.


Take a deep breath and LEARN from this circumstance. Whatever it may be there is a lesson to be learned, a take away to carry with you always. Life isn’t a sprint it’s a marathon. That’s what my dad would always say.


Sometimes the worst parts of life bring forth the greatest and most true form of beauty. It’s at these times that we learn about LOVE, HAPPINESS, THANKFULNESS, STRENGTH AND STABILITY. We learn things about ourselves and the people around us that we never knew before.


This will shape us for the rest of our lives. We’ll have new lessons to share with the world and a little more insight on what it is to live a humble but great existence.


Find a reason to thrive in any and everything you encounter. Find beauty in places that it seems it cannot survive or thrive. Remember that everything is only temporary including happiness and pain. Life is only temporary. If we search for life lessons in everything around us it gives us PURPOSE. A reason to be who we are.


GROWTH doesn’t happen when we’re content and comfortable. Growth happens when we are faced with uncertainty, and really cannot see a clear path to take. Train yourself to not complain or be afraid of the unknown. Teach yourself patience and learn how to have hope. Make the best of today so that tomorrow WILL be better.
