I started reading a book by Ryan Holiday called The Obstacle Is The Way. I am only a couple pages deep, but the book couldn’t have come at a better time. The obstacle is the path is what Ryan Holiday speaks about. When I took this photo I was about to throw in the towel and call it quits. It only took a simple change in perspective. The book read “The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition.” I’m not sure why it took me until now to figure out that the obstacles in the way are part of the path. They are our opportunities for growth - but only if we look at them that way.
