Dying Daily #363: A Perfect Life

A Perfect Life, A Perfect Lie

There is no time in life where everything magically comes together and we are problem free. Things are not just going to get easy at some point. No matter how well you live, how wise your decisions are, or how smart you are, difficult things are going to come your way.

There is never a time in life where everything is perfect.

This sounds like bad news, but it’s not.

It’s not good or bad, it’s just the way life works.

Things happen, we like some of them, we don’t like others. There is this whole universe out there, outside of us. It doesn’t revolve around us, it didn’t start with us, and it will not end with us.

It doesn’t even necessarily notice us.

Everything has the opportunity to teach us something if we let it.

Everything is an opportunity to evolve.

Everything is the step toward somewhere.

We only suffer if we think we have the right to determine where that somewhere is.

Life will never be problem-free.

It gets easier and easier depending on our decisions, but it never gets perfect.

There is no reason it should.

What is life trying to teach you right now?

How are you responding to this opportunity for growth?
