Easy And Uncomplicated?

I have been having vivid dreams lately, the kind that I wake up to and I can recall all the details... while I am dreaming it feels real.  Each time I wake up I am surprised that the dream isn't my reality.   Thankfully it is a nice dream, even so, I wake up from it only to find it is all just a dream...

I am sure it has to do with the trial/challenge that is on its way; I want to be past it, I want to be looking back at this time, breathing a sigh of relief.... Knowing I made it through... unfortunately I am not able to wish or dream this trial away.  I have to push forward and hope I come out stronger.

Part of me wants to go back to ignoring it but I know until I face this challenge, I will always be in this same place... and as lovely as this place can be, I know it will hold me back if I don't move on....  This quote is from one of my favorite movies, The Way We Were... Wouldn't it be lovely if we were old? We'd have survived all this. Everything would be easy and uncomplicated; the way it was when we were young. Katie said this to Hubble near the end of the movie, Hubble tells her it was never uncomplicated.

As much as I want what Katie desired, I know that Hubble was right when he said it is never uncomplicated.  We continue to have challenges throughout our lives, each one seems unbearable and yet we get through them.. That is what is holding me together right now, the hope that I will deal with this challenge and become stronger, even though I know it is one of the most difficult ones I will have to deal with.

Each one of us has different challenges, they are what we need to get through to become who we are meant to be.  I know they feel overwhelming, I am there with you all... As much as I want everything to be easy and uncomplicated, I know deep down that if life were that simple, I would be unhappy as there would be no growth.  I have the same question I am sure you all have too... Why do trials have to be so traumatic?  I don't know the answer... So I just keep working through them.

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future
