Life isn’t about happiness. Life is about feeling the full range of emotions. Life is about exploring the human capacity. Convenient happiness is a facade. Life presents its attributes in a dualistic nature. Pushing through pain allows us to experience bliss. Challenging ourselves, feeling weak and vulnerable, allows us to grow stronger. In order to learn, you must humbly acknowledge what you do not know. Instant gratification is a convenient happiness, but it is not true happiness. Happiness is not something to be sought, but rather, a result of seeking something greater.

There is so much beauty for us to discover, but we must explore. You’ll never be able to truly explore if you restrict yourself to the confines of comfort.
