People often ask me how I “stay so strong” during the challenging times in my life. For those I’ve shared my story with (or even just some of the grisly parts), they are amazed at my strength and positive attitude. I love hearing that! What kills me though is when the conversation turns to their own strength and I hear something like this: “I’m not that strong,” or “I could never do that.”
Yes, you are that strong.
Yes, you can do that- and more!
In the Get Through Shit Department, I’m literally no stronger or weaker than anyone else. I have exactly the same amount of will and push and drive and desire as every other human. I have my good days, my bad days, my great days and my shitastic days, just like you!
Whoever you are, wherever you’re at, and whatever you are going through at this time in your life: You’ve Got This. Dig deep, summon your inner-superhero and do whatever you need to in order to make it through your current set of challenges. You’ve done it before, and you can do it again. If you don’t hear it from anyone else, hear it now from me: I Believe in YOU!
