"Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures." - Joseph Addison

I've just posted my latest new motivational wallpaper to the gallery today called "Obstacles", which is my tenth wallpaper for 2011 and 110th overall.

An obstacle can been defined as something that blocks one's way or prevents or hinders progress. Life is full of these. I wish that life could just cooperate with us when we need it to. I wish that when we take care of a problem that arises, that issue would stay fixed - forever.

Unfortunately, life does not flow that way. That's why I selected this particular image. It shows a jungle with many obstacles along the way, like that downed tree. It also pictures a peaceful place where the water arrives beyond the rocks and difficulties.

Life indeed is full of challenges and obstacles. But that's how we learn, and improve. That's how we develop character, and become stronger. Our muscles only grow when they are used and stressed to a point where they actually tear. Then they heal and become thicker and stronger. Our coping skills become stronger when we face and get past certain challenges in our lives.

This quote is fitting too because obstacles do come in the form of loss or disappointment as well. Some things in life we may not be able to change, but we can change. These obstacles can also help guide us in the right direction too. And like the picture, in the end it all evens out, and we can feel much better about how things eventually turned out.

I'd like to send out a prayer for all those out there are are facing some very difficult obstacles in their lives today. These obstacles will make you stronger and better eventually. Keep your determination and hope up, despite these hindrances, so that you'll arrive at that peaceful spot. I know I look forward to that day myself.
