My Wish – For Everyone to Have Just the Right Amount of Pain In Their Lives.


The harder the conflict,

The more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap,

We esteem too lightly.

It is dearness only

That gives everything its value.

Thomas Paine


There is a sweet spot in becoming a member of the “Life-Changing Events Club.”

There has to be just the right amount of pain and hurt caused by the event in your life that introduces you to the club.

“Too little” pain and hurt, where one forgets and reverts back to their original life without gaining proper perspective to fully appreciate life is pointless.

“Too harsh” pain and hurt, where one’s will is broken, will destroy one’s outlook on life and make that person useless.

It has to be just enough pain and suffering that makes one change their perspective on life while still being able to move forward and live, unwilling to ever let go of the pain and suffering, realizing how important it is to one’s perspective.

That is just the right amount.

Pain and suffering when channeled become perspective.

Perspective leads to gratitude.

And gratitude leads to love.

And love is what makes the world

a better place.

My wish is that everyone has just the right amount of pain in their lives.
