A lecture I listened to yesterday talked about gratitude. Actually the idea behind the talk was to be grateful for challenges; without them we wouldn’t see how strong and capable we are. The Universe never gives us more than we can handle. Mother Theresa said it well. ‘It is said we are never given more than we can handle’, she stated. Then she stopped, took a deep breath and smiled. ‘Sometimes I wish they didn’t think I could handle so much’, she added. Anyway, sometimes I feel like there are so many challenges that once I get through them, I will be that much more aware of my strengths and capabilities. In actuality, however, I am already strong and capable. I just need to hold that idea in my mind, and be grateful for the opportunity that will allow me to get more in touch with my abilities and power.
