11-09-10: "Curve Balls" in Life

Recently I was talking with a friend about how come it seems life throws us "curve balls" just at the moment we think we are "in a good place" in life. Often we blame others, our higher power, or even ourselves when things do not go the way we had hoped. When things do not progress the way we had hoped, as human beings we often become frustrated or discouraged. Instead of becoming frustrated and discouraged, we can choose to see our life's "curve balls" as a strength; we can rise to the occasion. An inspiring quote by Helen Keller explains it perfectly: "Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."
