Going through Star Wars Guys !!!!

Life is more difficult than you want it will be.

Life has more challenges and obstacles than you expect.

Life hurts.

And that’s okay, because that’s the way it is this side of eternity. Our choice lies not in whether or not we experience heartache, loss, and suffering. Our choice lies in how we experience it and react to it. Do we allow it to dominate us, or do we dominate it. These are fair questions–good questions. I’ve been wrestling with them myself recently.

I put the below post together in May but for some reason, I never posted it. Not sure why. Seems it would have been worth doing. Here it is, updated and edited.

Today I’m going to be brief, or at least try. Here’s the bottom line: I’ve been doing a lot of work on myself personally for the last eight months. Between different self assessments, observations about my past and present, and therapy, I’ve been putting in the wrench time to build a better life.
