Something to Think About

“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.”

—Paulo Coelho

When I read this quote by Paulo Coelho, I thought the famous auther must be reading my emails. I work hard, focus, and nothing happens. I get close, but it seems what I want is always just out of reach. All of sudden, I’m juggling so many balls, I don’t dare look away.

My experience teaches me life is unpredictable. Life isn’t fair. It’s the only life I have, so shake it off, accept what is and keep moving.

What is your experience? Is it similar to mine? How do you deal with life’s way of testing you?
