This is not what I signed up for

Do you sometimes experience trials and difficulties in your life? Do you feel it's unfair? Do you catch yourself saying: Why me?
I read a wonderful little book by Dieter F. Uchtdorf talking about life and how we all have to go through rough times. He compares me and you to the princesses of the fairy tales. Here are some of their problems: ate a poisened apple and dropped dead (at least for a while), was poked by a spinning needle and made to sleep 100 years, had to choose between a grandmother and a wolf and made the wrong choice (amazing as that sounds), was ridiculed by step-mother and step-sisters, and the list goes on.
There is a "happily ever after" for each one of us if we make good choices in life. Our once upon a time can end up with exactly that, if we do our best. If we do our best, we have not failed.
And maybe, before coming to this earth, this is exactly what we signed up for. We know we learn from trials, we know we grow from difficulties. Choosing to be better, is a good thing after all.

Today's water color is a happy fairy called "Blomster-Line". Enjoy!
