Origins of Life is Hard. Fighting is Easy.TM

“The meaning of Life is Hard. Fighting is Easy.TM is that life can be a struggle.
But, if you find a passion for that one thing that makes you happ
y, whatever that passion is, it will be easy.

The day-to-day and more serious struggles in life can weigh a person down.
Life in itself is a struggle for some people.
Finding the one thing in life that makes the person happy can make everything easy.
For me, that one thing is literally fighting.”
