It is a common belief that cats have seven lives. This is said due to its great ability to survive the greatest dangers. Legend has it that a cat walking through the desert came across an enormous cactus. To continue on his way, he had to take a huge leap because, if he failed to do so, he would be pricked by all of its thorns. The cat was left wondering what to do. Some birds gathered near him and after seeing him with fear, they discouraged him, saying that he would never achieve such a great leap. However, the cat knew he had the ability to do so, so he decided to trust himself and took that jump that caused him so much fear. When he opened his eyes, full of sand, he realized that he was already on the other side and that he could continue his way, sure that, in case of encountering another obstacle, he would find a way to overcome it as long as he trusted himself.
May the cat of this legend remind us that, despite the obstacles that come in our way and regardless of other people’s opinion or external judgment, if we trust in what each of us is capable of, we will find the way to overcome the obstacles and difficulties that life presents us.
