How does one feel extreme gratitude? Through extreme difficulty and through long periods of enduring difficulty.

Thus in life, one cannot feel gratitude without difficulty. One cannot force oneself to feel gratitude.

Furthermore, perhaps life ain’t about trying to avoid difficulty and challenge, but rather to take it in good stride and know:

Once this difficult task is finished and accomplished by me, it will all be worth it … due to the extreme gratitude I will feel!
