Yes I’m blessed but sometimes it feels like there is a maximum capacity of blessings that a person can have.

It feels like anytime you take a breathe something has to f up.

If life is a game, then it would be crazy to stay in the same level forever right? So maybe in life when you have mastered one level you have to move on to the next.

But that is scary and it implies that you have to play forever? 

Why don’t we get to just stay at one level? 

But if we did then we would not be at this level that we want to stay at.

Change is always good it is what allowed you to be in the situation that you are in right now.

P.S It is the Lords will
