Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle.”

~Annie Besant


Often people don’t like to admit it, but it is true:  the only life worth living is the one that challenges who and what you are.  It can’t and shouldn’t be always easy and carefree.  It is only through struggle, challenges, loss, and grief, that we can find and appreciate joy, love, fulfillment, success and peace.  We don’t do this by playing it safe or hiding from life.  Rather, we must embrace all of life fully – the good and the challenging, learn from our experiences, share our knowledge and gifts, and reflect on all we have.  Life is a great adventure – but only if you live it!
