Life is complicated. It starts before we're ready, it continues while we're still trying to figure out the point of it. And it ends long before we've worked out just what to do.
As you have probably figured out by now, life is complicated. It never seems the way that we predict it to go, no matter how much we may plan, or hope that things may go a certain way, it just doesn't always happen according to our will. Acceptance of this fact is necessary in preparing for all of lives challenges presented to us on a daily basis. Though life is a blur, and we can not possibly prepare for everything, it is still important to prepare as much as possible for what we can prepare for. Making goals for yourself to accomplish and accomplishing them is a good way to learn about how to overcome challenges that life may throw at you unexpectedly.
