If It Isn’t Hard, Then I Won’t Take It
Entering a new field of work, with a new role and responsibilities will not be easy at all for everyone. Especially if all that you know, the job qualifications deviated from your ability. Is looming in sight, how horror it would be. But sometimes for some cases, we did not have too many options. And damn the narrowness of choice often brings goodness into life learning process.

If I was commanded to learn FROM the kindergarten kids, I want to. But to learn again IN kindergarten school, I guess is enough. Life is difficult, and indeed, no one ever say it is not. When life becomes too easy, on the contrary I will start questioning.
Do not complain life is boring, if you do not want to crawl out of the routine.
Take it! If you know it won’t be easy, because then you know you will grow and level up.
