Life is quite the journey, indeed. You never know what will be thrown at you or what obstacles will be in your way. You learn and grow each day, by overcoming obstacles that our heavenly father selected just for us. Life, of course, isn't always easy (and no one said it would be) you have to take a step back, take a deep breath, take a few minuets to see the full picture, and then keep on trucking. Giving up is never an option. People are each given a different set of trials. Don't go around comparing your life and trials to someone else's. It's sometimes easy to compare your progress to anothers, but that's not fair to either of you. Everyone's life is unique to them. I came acrossed a quote not to long ago that said: "Don't hate the sinner; hate the sin". I really like it. It helps me to remember that everyone makes mistakes and everyone is different. It is easy for us, me especially, to judge others from the mistakes we have made. No one has the right to judge another unless they are perfect themselves. Since no one will have the opportunity to be perfect while here on this earth, no one can judge. Love everyone and greet everyone with a smile! :) Remember, life is a journey.
