Michelle talks about strength
I take strength for granted, until something unexpected sets me back. Maybe it’s the flu or a misunderstanding with a family member. It’s great knowing that other people can rely on me, great having an I-can-do-that approach to life. But even a strong woman has her limits. And inner strength – the sister of courage – sometimes looks quite different than a show of strength.

Yet it’s what we need most for facing challenges and doing what’s necessary.

I’ve come to see, for example, that it takes a great deal of strength to exercise restraint. Take a pinecone: it fiercely protects its seeds until at just the right moment ... it releases them. Strong and flexible. I like that.
