Life is full of surprises.  Some pleasant and some less pleasant than we care to endure.

Life brings us joy, solitude, and gratification; equally it brings us heartache, pain, and turmoil.

When you find that life seems to have turned its back on you; and you cannot seem to grasp life’s purpose anymore;  or when you simply cannot gain understanding of life’s many twists and turns, what is one to do?

When each road travelled seems to lead to a dead end… do you keep on keeping on?  Do you take a step back; refocus, regroup and continue to carry on?  Or, do you simply just throw in the towel?

The answer is definitely not an easy one. There are so many factors which one must consider. 

Each situation, each scenario is different and should be treated as such.  Look at the equation both from outside and within.  Each contributing factor must be weighted. 

What and who matters most?  What doesn’t; who doesn’t; what will; and who won’t?

When life seems to have turned it’s back on you… you need to stand firm; stand strong; and refuse to turn your back on it!

Fight the good fight, and remember….

What doesn’t make you weak, can only make you strong!
