Being strong is not only a physical attribute, but a mental one as well! It is truly amazing, just how much strength is available to us in our minds and in our soul, when we really need it. I will admit, sometimes we need a “push” in order to find it, but regardless, we will indeed find our inner strength and what a gift that wake up is!
It is very easy to fall into depression when things are not going as planned, and it is very easy to stay there. We all go through many challenges in our lives, but in order to stay strong, we need to take each challenge, one at a time. Strength will constantly be there for us; just need to tap into the “signs” of strength when they present themselves.
Strength shows up in many forms.
Reading books, reading articles, and reading blogs. Listening to music, the news, or a certain TV show. Spending time with a friend, a family member, or watching an interaction between complete strangers. Paying attention to our body, our mind, and our soul and nourishing what we need. Meditation, food, exercise, yoga, etc., will bring you the strength your healthy mindset will need in order to gain more strength.
Strength = Wisdom
It is okay to take a much needed “me” day, or put yourself in a “gentle timeout”; we all need time to ourselves to cry through our frustrations and the feeling of being overwhelmed. It is okay to cry through it, as this is also a way to love yourself through your challenges as well. Crying is the first step to healing, and healing helps to build strength.
Strength = Healing
Take time to look at yourself in the mirror and say, “it is okay what you are experiencing, you are human”, show yourself the comfort, understanding, and love that you would so freely give others. It is time to give it to yourself.
Strength = Love
Stay strong, stay available to yourself, stay in love with who you are, and understand you are only human.
