Charles Warner|Daily TimesWe often think of something being smooth as a good thing and it often is. Yet, something that's too smooth can be quite the obstacle, especially when it prevents you from gaining traction or a handhold as you make your way forward and/or upward. A life that is too smooth is a life that it never challenged, a life that remains in the valley because it cannot gain any traction or handholds to climb up into the heavens. A challenged life is one that, while it will often find the going tough, will nevertheless gain traction and handholds in its climb and, in the end, reach its eternal goal.
