Obstacles: Stumbling Blocks or Stepping Stones?

"For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. 

Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. 

Then life would begin. 

At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

- Bette Howland

This really made me think. Do I sometimes grumble over obstacles that seem to be in my way for achieving a happy life, when in reality they are stepping stones for growth and meant to be there as part of my life?

Do you, like me sometimes scream at the obstacle in front of you, as if to say "Get out of my way, you helpful stepping stone, you!"

Hmm. Something to think about.
