Once there was a man walking across a field who encountered a tiger. When the man saw the tiger, he fled across the field, the tiger chased after him. Coming to a cliff, he caught hold of a wild vine and swung himself over the edge. The tiger looked down at the man and sniffed at him from above. Terrified, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger had come, waiting to eat him. The man then notices two mice, one white and one black, who have begun to gnaw away at the vine. The man suddenly becomes distracted when he sees a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine in one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. Oh, and how sweet it tasted!
When I read this story, I laughed. I thought, "If only everyone could have such a positive attitude -- including me!"
When you think about challenges in your life, what comes to mind? Does the thought of facing a challenge fill you with stress and worry? Or do you think, "No big deal; I can get through anything!"
Perhaps, you have mixed feelings, like me.
A few years ago, I was searching Pinterest for new recipes and stumbled upon a recipe for vegetarian buffalo cauliflower. After reading through the ingredients, I knew that I could make the recipe vegan and couldn't wait to try it at home! My vegan version of the recipe turned out to be a huge success. In fact, I liked it so much, I ate it completely by myself in one sitting!
