Worth it.

Lost and stuck in a thorn bush at dusk with burrs in my shoes, I began to have second thoughts about climbing the hillside to snap this photo.

Now it seems totally worth it. The truth is this: you are reading a cliche post about how good things can come from hard times. Yet over and over I find myself forgetting this lesson. Synapses in the brain are what “contain” our knowledge, and they form from electrical activity sparked by mistakes. Challenges literally make people smarter. I have to believe the same holds true for the soul: that the darkest days are what strengthen hope.
