As you go through the motions of everyday life for the most part it’s hard to maintain a child like outlook when everything around you seems to crumble, people use you and take advantage of you and everything you thought was working out ending up crashing and burning. If this is happening to you, does that mean you need to take a more pessimisstic outlook on life and change your beliefs, values and character?
One thing that’s guranteed in life is change. People will change, situations will change, technology will advance and change, life will go up and down and sometimes you’ll feel like you’re on a rollercoaster ride. Would everyone be satisfied in life if it was just one boring straight line, nothing changed, everything was always the same and predictable and you never had to figure anything out? That’s why it’s called a journey because there are lessons to be learned and obstacles to overcome. Good times will occur and bad times never last. Everyone has their season to prosper and be elevate to a higher level of happiness you just have to learn how to make lemonade out of lemons and if you’re a person of good character never loose the values that were instilled in you.
“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12)
