Sometimes life is hard, but so what! That is when you need inspiration to push forward. No matter how hard life is, you still have to live it. Find a source of inspiration even when things are hard.
Hard times come and go. The problem is that hard times feel like they are going to last forever! It is like when you go for a massage or are watching a great movie. During those pleasurable things, time seems to speed up. The hour-long massage feels wonderful but like it was only 30 minutes. The great movie seems to be over in the blink of an eye. But, hard things like waiting to hear about the condition of a loved one who has been hurt or meetings to discuss business problems seem to last forever. During the bad times, the bad experience seems to last three or four times as long as the clock says has passed.
