Charlene Costanzo (author of The Twelve Gifts From the Garden) reminds us to call upon our strength in great times of need.
“When you look back over your life
and see how much you’ve had to face…
it’s interesting to try and pinpoint the first time…
you had to reach inside yourself
and pull out strength
you didn’t know you had.”
– Loretta Lynn
Whether or not you take time today to reflect upon the first time, or any time, you reached within and discovered you had strength beyond your previous understanding, please remember, as Christopher Robin said to Winnie the Pooh, “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
More beautiful too. It’s true.
Let’s put our gifts to good use.
