How many people like it when they are travelling on a rough, hilly and difficult road? We all like to travel on a flat,smooth, and easy-to travel-on road, don’t we?
Yet,the hilly or rough and difficult road has its own blessings? Have you never thought about this? Many would wonder what blessings a hilly and rough road can have for anybody? How can going uphill be a blessing?
Someone has answered this beautifully. To paraphrase his words, when you have to go uphill all the times, you end up with strong legs.
It sounds brilliant, doesn’t it? Although someone has jokingly reacted to it by saying “if only the legs don’t break before the one in question arrives.”
To go uphill often is to struggle; and struggle offers us an opportunity to become strong. If adversity, which is struggle, is positively handled, one emerges from it stronger and tougher.
Strong muscles are often the fruit of constant use or exercise. Muscles that are not used or exercised become flabby.
If you are facing a lot of challenges in your life, consider yourself lucky. That is a great blessing. If you approach them positively, they will take you to where you want to go.
The writer was thus perfect when he said going uphill a lot was a good opportunity to end up with strong legs.
