I'm not "hand-picking" these quotes...I just change them based on whatever comes out of the box. Consequently there are some I might love less than others. Some that might speak to me less than others. When that happens, I try to think about the quote for a few minutes, and figure out what I might learn from it. Call it a meditation, almost. This was one of those quotes for me. I think initially I couldn't figure out what difficulties I might have mastered, or how those might have, in fact, turned into opportunities. Maybe I was just not as smart as Winston Churchill and didn't totally understand it. Very possible.
In any case, I'm still pondering on this one. Maybe it'll speak to one of you in a more profound way than it did me. If not, well, we can't all be Churchill I guess.
