Mark Twain once said: “A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn no other way.”
We all have been there – many days, months or years later, we say, “that was the best learning experience I ever had.”… but while we are going through it, we are cursing the day this person or situation came into our lives.
Here’s to appreciating the gift of the painful lessons. I suggest not shying away from whatever it is that seems distasteful to you, especially when you know there are high rewards – if you can “suffer through it.”
Suffering is so overrated. Let’s skip that part – just for today. Carry the cat anyway.
