Perceiving life as hard is entirely a choice, regardless of how technical or demanding your responsibilities are.
A creek trickles peacefully, and a waterfall crashes powerfully, but both flow naturally and effortlessly. Regardless of whether our life resembles a creek or a waterfall at any given time it is our choice to sink like a rock, or float like a leaf.
