Life is full of paradoxes, as roses are of thorns. ― Fernando Pessoa
Life is not a bed of roses is seemingly a cliché, but also a statement of fact. Life is riddled with recurring challenges and problems even though it is also a sweet adventure. There is no doubt that as humans we celebrate being alive. We celebrate when life turns out good for us. We jubilate during moments of triumphs and victories.
However, in trying to find the path of success, we often are besieged with problems and uncountable challenges which are surmountable anyway. These difficulties become thorny paths as we seek for accomplishments. No one prays for adversity but they do rear their ugly heads occasionally in our lives. No one is free from these encumbrances. None. We can anticipate these problems even as we seek ways to fight these demons that attack our lives.
The paths of existence and the road to success is always filled with rocky hills and valleys. There are ticks, snakes, and thorns littered on these paths. It’s a challenging phase but beneath that thorny unease lie a beautiful life.
For life is sweet and beautiful just as the roses are. And punctuated with pains and unpleasant situations too. For there is no rose without a thorn. There is no life without challenges.
In response to the Daily Prompt – Thorny.
Peace and Love!
