Life is filled with speedbumps. You’re cruising right along and then you hit one. Some are bigger than other; that’s a fact. What’s important is not that you hit the speedbump; it’s how you navigate it. So you hit one – what do you do? Do you wallow in self pity or do you deal with it? -Herman Edwards-

Life presents us many challenges, some are tough, some are just easy and some are just too hard to handle. Depending on what life we live, situations that we are face into, the thought is we have to deal with it and survive. Facing and dealing with the ruts in our life and working through them no matter how large or small it is, can give us inner strength to keep going. Every case is different I guess, but in the end, every result is the same. Deal with obstacles, learn from it and refuse to give in.

When something bad happens, its alright that we may feel bad, but immediately after we have to let go and leave it behind or else you’ll get stuck up and stagnant.

Recently, I am going through tough times at college. Beating all the deadlines, passing all the requirements, writing our thesis documents plus all the extra requirements needed to be done under time pressure. As I accomplished one task at a time another speedbump goes my way and I felt like being trapped in super mario’s world.

Problems creep us all the time. Sometimes they smack us straight in our face but we have to keep in our mind that the heat of hard times is designed to mold and improve us. How we react to heartaches, obstacles, problems and tough situations will define us as a person and an individual. It gives us a chance to challenge ourselves and pass lessons to others. It gives us opportunity to do something right. It allows us to turn something devastating into something pleasant. God never trip us up, but he does allow tough circumstances to build our character and maturity. I know that before anyone can really enjoy success, he must endure hardships.

As I end this up I realized that the challenges I face at college helps me shape up my individuality and there are only two choices. Hit it and deal with it.
