March 15--Rarely Easy

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for extraordinary destiny.  --C. S. Lewis

    We tend to think that someone who is experiencing "extraordinary destiny" just woke up there one day, piece of cake, no effort involved. That is rarely the case. Most everyone who has achieved in life has had to move through hardships, disappointments, challenges, setbacks. That's the preparation part of Lewis' quote. Anything meaningful is worth putting in the effort, though it may not seem to be so in the down moments. 
    An excellent example of today's topic is human birth. There is plenty of hardship both for the mother and the baby. It's an "ordinary" process, happening thousands of times a day around planet Earth. A new human life emerges, with infinite potential to make a difference in the world. That right there is extraordinary destiny. 
    Loving the process,
