Quoted from the Oprah Show

8 Oct

During an interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Jane Fonda said: “The challenge is not to be perfect, it’s to be whole. We have to live a challenged life.”

After hearing that I asked myself, what is a challenged life?

Is it the challenges we have to overcome,  those we need to face or is it us challenging ourselves?

What does it mean for you?

I think we are challenged by each of these challenges in our everyday lives. We have to summon up courage to overcome disappointment and loss. We have to face our fears, naysayers and those who would trespass against us.

I promise I won’t start sermonizing or get on my soapbox.

But despite it all we have to challenge ourselves to be better people, to not give up on our dreams and not to let others weaken our spirits or lead us down the wrong path. OK, bear with me. I’m almost done.

These are constant challenges, we as human beings must acknowledge and accept. They’re put before us as tests of our will.

By definition, survival of the fittest means only the strong can survive. So if we’re to exist on planet earth we will be challenged daily—by life.

Dig deep and get the strength to indeed, live a life that challenges you.
