Thought this was an interesting photo at REI.
It says behind the cash registers:
People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. – Eleanor Roosevelt
The background has this serene river flow–along with some obvious whitewater.
But in front of it, the cash register area is hopping crazy and messy.
It’s a contradiction–not unlike life itself which is full of it’s own ups and downs that challenge us routinely.
Life is where we get the experience that shapes us and strengthens us, as long as it does not break us.
Life = Growth
Why else would we be here?
G-d is the best teacher. 😉
