In a perfect world, you never endure stress or strife. In this one, it is inevitable. You know that saying, "Nothing worth having comes easy." Nearly everything in your life that you find valuable will come at a cost. Regardless of what or whom it is, there's a pattern of having to afford or maintain its existence. I don't intend to overwhelm you with a deep reflection, but rather to put your responsibilities in perspective. Life can be dauntingly amazing if you act in alignment with the goals you wish to achieve. Everyday adds up, so focus each day on what is immediately before you and how that will ultimately get you to your destination.
