An Attempt to Inspire: To those who feel overwhelmed

It has been a few weeks since I have posted An Attempt to Inspire and quote of the week, and I really want to get back on track. This week, this post is dedicated to a few friends of mine who have recently found themselves grabbing at straws (and to anyone else who feels they have a lot to handle).

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. ~Mother Teresa

It is amazing how in tough times we think we are at a point where we have been given more than we can take, only to find out later that we are much stronger than we originally thought. You can ALWAYS push through. A similarly themed quote to the one above that I love is by Winston Churchill (and more recently incorporated into a Rodney Atkins song): "If you are going through hell, keep going." So to anyone who feels or has felt this way, in the words of a famous Pixar fish named Dory, "Just keep swimming."

Keep on keepin' on. You can do it. Have a great week.
