I know, growing up they tell you that life's not supposed to be easy, but you never really know until you get older. Eventually, though, it gets easier. I'm "learning to sail my ship" and am having less hardships than ever. 2013 and 2014 have been good years for me, but as my life continues there are new storms thrown my way. This whole house hunt, for instance, is taking it's toll on both Z and I, but we're optimistic and persistent. We're becoming masters of the DC Real Estate seas (or so we'd like to think).
Enough of a story; I'm a sea-loving lady who enjoys this inspiring quote, reminiscent of one I plan to get as a tattoo. I hope you too enjoy the quote and that you understand if you're going through a rough patch it will end and you will come out a master of the experience.
