One of my favourite books is The Obstacle is the Way. It follows the stoic approach to life. We can’t control what happens to us, but we can control our response. And sometimes, the things that seem like insurmountable obstacles, become the things which teach us the most. I know that if I had not gone through the more challenging times in my life, I would not have the resources and strengths to do the job I have now. So, if life is difficult for you right now... keep going. It may not feel like it right now, but even this awful time will have something within it which will make you stronger, more empathetic, perhaps lead you to places you never imagined. Everything life sends us can be a learning experience... even if it’s only when we look back after a period of time. And that learning experience can be the stepping stone to where we want to go.
