I don’t know anyone who isn’t facing a big challenge right now and many are facing multiple challenges such as:
- financial struggle or ruin
- recent death of friends and family members
- loss of employment or
- unhappy employment
- personal illness and illness of family members who need care taking
- estranged relationships with family and former friends
- legal issues…tax issues…bureaucratic red tape Hell
Yet no matter how big our challenges are, there is always someone who is worse off than ourselves. That may be the only good reason to watch the news…to be reminded that given what people are having to live through on the global scale, we here in the U.S., still have it pretty darned good.
Not so sure about that? At the end of the day, do you still have a roof over your head? Do you have clean water to drink? Were you able to feed your children well? Is your belly full? Do you have at least one person you can count on to give you some encouragement when you most need it? Answering yes to this last question is a bonus blessing!
Everyday we are in receivership of so many blessings! Then why is it so difficult then to be in the energy of gratitude for all the simple and profound ways that life supports us? Why is it so easy to be floundering in regret, resentment, anger, hopelessness?
When did we become so self-centered, so spoiled that we thought more was owed to us then our daily sustenance?
And how did we ever come to believe that we could guarantee a safe, comfortable passage through life, by having material security or spiritual security, even? When did we as a culture, forget that life encompasses all possible experience?

Here’s my two cents worth. No matter how big and how many our challenges are, we are BIGGER than our experience of them! When we come out of the self-imposed prison of self-pity and overwhelm and gather with others to foster gratitude, hope and friendly support–we are BIGGER and BIGGER!
