“When God is going to do something wonderful, He or She always starts with a hardship; when God is going to do something amazing, He or She starts with an impossibility.”
Anne Lamott, Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith
“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.”
It’s true when they say that it’s the journey, not the destination, that really matters. I find that when you are always fixated on the ‘top of the mountain,’ life starts slipping between your fingers and you wonder where all the time went. Embrace your journey and embrace the times of hardship, because when you finally do get to the peak, you will realize that it’s the struggle that makes the victory so much more sweeter.
