“I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be.”
We can plan all we want, but even the best laid plans can fall through. When we can’t seem to think outside the box, the universe will often force us to do so. Because sometimes the best places to be are the places we never thought of.
“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish he didn’t trust me so much” -Mother Teresa
I found this quote earlier this week and I’ve been repeating it over and over. I know the universe will not throw me anything bigger than what I can deal with. Unfortunately, I can deal with a lot. When the going gets rough, I remind myself that I am strong enough to get through this.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I’ve been watching this show called Being Erica on Netflix. Yes, it’s mega cheesy. Yes, it has sub-par Canadian production values. But it also has its great moments.
One of the things I enjoy about it is a character who is full of insightful quotes. I’ve been taking notes as he says the ones that really hit home for me.
Consider this your “Weekend Wisdom.” But on a Thursday. Because well, sometimes we could use some thoughtful words to get us through the week. I know I do.
