Another amusing story about how we often go for the easy option even when it clearly isn't the right one!

Be brave
Take that step, that leap of faith. If you should succeed then fabulous if you should not then count it as a success. You now know what not to do. I would rather live a life of regrets than regret not living. Dare yourself to step out of your comfort zone, you’ll be surprised how much you can learn. Kia Kaha - be strong - live a little or a lot.
it’s not always easy
i learnt that you can’t always take the route you would like to just because it’s easier and better sometimes you have to get up the courage and be brave enough to take the route/choice you may not want to.
Light At End Of Tunnel
I have discovered in life when I am in a difficult situation there is usually a reason for it. Sometimes the answer or meaning of the situation isn’t revealed until afterwards. Times like these the best thing you can do is surround yourself with the people who will be there to lift you up and give you support during difficult times.
Looking for the way out.
We are always looking for the easy option, the way out. But we have to remember that we won’t always have the easy option. And we gain more and learn more by doing something more difficult.
Not the best
I noticed that in the middle of the story, I was thinking about how there would be a big plot twist. I think that this story was simple and got straight to the point but didn’t need the extra “fluff”. Anyone get what I’m saying?
Different take
I actually first thought with this one that it was about how sometimes the priority does not need to be finding the car, sometimes the best thing to do is just take a stroll.
The happiest way to live happy...
I learn that the way to happiness is some time a lonely way a bark way but then you past it there will de light ..... but that why it is the happier way to go because is not easy. And that’s what makes it worth it....
Not taking the easy way
It really helped me think about my life and it also helped me relax more.
Taking the hard way
I learned to not always take the enjoyable route because sometimes that won’t lead you to the right direction. You might have to go through troubles to succeed.
“Sometimes you have to take the difficult way, the one you don’t like so much.” This statement resonates with me because certain situations I am currently in has forced me to delay planning and feel comfortable in being uncomfortable. I love planning months and occasionally years at a time, but I am realizing that not all things can be planned. I often won’t figure out my next step until potentially the last moment and this level of uncertainty comes with the career I chose to pursue. The last few months haven’t been easy, but I am growing from practicing patience and trusting that things will work out in the end, no matter how I feel right now.
Just comfort and encouragement. Love this app. It’s helping me so much!
