"The human story does not unfold like a mathematical calculation on the principle that two and two make four. Sometimes in life they make five or minus three; and sometimes the blackboard topples down in the middle of the sum and leaves the class in disorder and the pedagogue with a black eye."
~ Winston Churchill ~
In some way, getting what we want is more challenging than not getting it. Not getting it is easy- we never get it- and we know how to deal with struggle and disappointment... but exactly what we've always wanted? It seems impossible, and as if we will have to forever prove and justify that we're worth it.
I accept the blessings in my life as well as the challenges.
