Is anything ever easy at first?

I was helping my mom around the yard today. The weather is finally beautiful.

She asked me to make a border around one of our gardens. I had to grab a shovel and bend over digging up a trench around the garden. Easy stuff, but after doing the circumference of the garden my lower back was in pain. Which prompted me to ponder about how rarely things come easy in life.

On our first attempt at something new, we are often greeted with discouragement because we encounter pain, fatigue and failure.  A lot of the time we get discouraged and don’t try to improve. In reality of course all it takes is time.
