Peeling the Layers

“Life is like an onion; you peel it off one layer at a time and sometimes you weep.”
~Carl Sandburg

No matter how much we study or reflect, we simply cannot know everything there is to know about life. There will always be some aspect of mystery surrounding our existence.

The one thing we can do is enjoy the stages of our lives, never getting complacent, or too comfortable with status quo. We must always be mindful that perhaps a very different stage will follow. We may endure some extremely difficult times; perhaps you are experiencing those times right now. These troubled times are likely to be followed by happy and productive times.

No matter how hard it may be, I will try to embrace the different stages of my life, even the ones that are painful and uncomfortable. I know that these times shape the kind of person I am the story that I tell to others.
