Chose To BECAUSE It’s Hard

Have you ever been in traffic and frustrated that someone cut you off? Have you lost your temper on something so trivial before? We’re so fortunate to live in such comfort, moved from place to place with little effort, which often we forget what it’s like to feel real frustration.
