Can you find the beauty in getting beat up by life?

Can you find the beauty in getting beat up by life? Good morning good people; I'll get right to it. I am finding life gets more brutal as you get older. I anticipated life would get a little easier as I get older and gain more knowledge and wisdom. I thought how easy it would be to master the art of a successful life as I get older. You expect it to turn out the way you envisioned when you worked hard for something, right?. I am learning the hard way that life will punch you in the gut and give you a right hook when you're not looking. Life has an interesting way of challenging you to either give up or to push harder to ascertain success in life. I want to stress that everyone's definition of success is different (later post). In this case, I would equate success as being happy and enjoying life where ever you are, finding peace, laughter, and joy in the little things, and being of service to others. Find what makes you sing in the morning and what motivates you to run in the mornings ( later post). What makes you want to get up with the rooster and greet the day with a smile? Notice nothing I mentioned cost money. Now I am not saying money is not a good thing to have or obtaining wealth doesn't afford happiness in something you can buy. But finding wealth in peace, joy, relationships, and laughter in life is free.
