Don't let life get you down!

Many people -- myself included -- let life get them down sometimes. We fret over the fact that life never quite seems perfect -- there's always a problem to be resolved, an issue to be addressed.

Here's the reality: Life was never perfect before, it won't be perfect today, and it won't be so in the future either. We can do things to put our ducks in a row as best as we can, but we can't just sweep everything under a rug and go about our business. It doesn't work that way.

As counterintuitive as this may sound, it's a good thing that life presents a steady stream of challenges. It keeps us on our toes and striving to better ourselves.

Can you imagine a life completely devoid of worries or goals? We'd have nothing to look forward to if things remained the same day in and day out.

Of course, you want to minimize the stress in your life and not allow problems to tailspin into crises.

But you shouldn't feel despondent over the fact that your life isn't as perfect as you want it to be.

There is no such thing as the perfect life. Because we don't have a crystal ball to guide us, we will always have regrets and second guess some of our decisions.

Still, we can learn from our mistakes. It's these experiences that ultimately shape us as individuals. If we didn't have to struggle, we'd never know the feeling of perseverance, the sweet taste of victory.

Let's face it: without any challenges, life wouldn't be as interesting. And here's the best part: you have what it takes to overcome them so long as you believe in yourself and never quit!
