I've never prayed for an easy life; hardships I've had a few, but I've prayed and still pray for the strength to endure a difficult life because life is never easy.
One thing my life has thought me is to always be ready to adapt. It's funny how much truth there is to the words spoken by Bruce Lee
Be shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
