The Hard or the Easy Path?

 Sometimes, after a particularly challenging day, I find myself thinking-why can’t this just be easy?! Unlike some people, I’m blessed to be working in a field I enjoy and I have acquired almost everything I need to succeed. Yet at times, that question bubbles up. Anytime a phrase or question flows unhindered through my head, I believe it’s necessary to dig deeper and examine it’s personal point of origin.    Here’s some of the questions I found myself pondering today:     1. Should things that come easy for us be considered the right thing or the correct path?     2. Is adversity always necessary for our growth? If so, how much and for how long?    3. How can we tell which work best in each situation?  Some things should be easy, like the back in forth between you and your best friend. Some things are supposed to hard, like going to school to become a lawyer or surgeon. And frankly, some situations sit in a gray area that is defined only by where we are in our life and how much we can handle at that exact moment.
