Life is about accepting the challenges along the way, choosing to keep moving forward, and savoring the journey.

Today I’m thankful for Challenges
Perspective is everything when you are experiencing the challenges of life.
Joni Eareckson Tada
Without challenges in life, we wouldn’t be the people we are now. We don't grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges.
We should focus on solutions rather than situations. When we focus on our problems, we give them strength and feed their growth, our problems take us where they want us to go. Often what wears us down most is not the actual problem, but the constant thinking about it.
Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.
When we focus on solutions, our lives are more productive because our goal is to exhaust all our options. This change in perspective causes us to see a glass that is half full.
Challenging circumstances serve the purpose of teaching us how to enjoy the moment and we are more inclined to seize new opportunities.
If you so choose, the challenges can make you stronger. If you so choose, the disappointments can make you more determined.
