I thought this was really cool~~~HARD but still cool!

-This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths...Once we
truly know that life is difficult -- once we truly understand
and accept it -- then life is no longer difficult. Because
once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer
matters.

*M. Scott Peck {American Author}

Oh, I really DO want to believe this. Maybe I just still don't realize that life is difficult:)

I guess keep pilin' it on!

It's true. I think in our society, we grow up believing that life not only can be, but is supposed to be, "happily ever after".

Then, when we encounter life's difficulties, we feel like defective failures.

I once heard this one: "Be prepared for the worst, hope for the best."

yep-same thing as 'expect the worst-hope for the best'?
LOL I heard that on Beverly Hills 90210, a looooooooooooooong time ago. LOL Funny, I didn't hear it from anywhere else;) TV of all things.
