When You Think Of Strength, Think Of Yourself

Do you consider yourself strong?

Or are you one of those who admire the strength of others and wish you were as strong as they are, if not more?

First off, there is no need to compare yourself to others. You have enough strength to face a giant if needed.

Maybe you are asking yourself how?

Well.. Keep in mind that there are successes even in small things. It is quite certain that you have already conquered a lot of challenges in life.. and you are here still – alive and kicking; ready to make a difference each and every day.

We are only human and it’s normal that you doubt yourself when dealing with challenges, whatever they are. You ask yourself whether you can get through it or not. You are scared and wondering where you are going to get the strength to carry on.

But you handle it with head held high, one day at a time, blow by blow, each step inching forward.

Then, one day, you just wake up and everything is alright. The sun seems brighter; you are more confident, and the world, in general, seems more alive.

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” ― Albert Camus

I know because that is how I usually feel.

At first, I think that I do not have the capacity to deal with the problem and the dramas associated with it. But whatever clouds and storms lie ahead, I eventually come out unscathed and stronger for the next blow.

So when you feel that you are being inundated by some events in your life and everything seems to be going out of control: Look again, for it really isn’t as heavy as you thought. You just need to take a deep breath, gather your thoughts, and be the strong person that you are. Look deep within. While it is alright to hold the hand of your family or friends, it is your own strength that matters. You are the one dealing with the problem in the end.

You were able to surpass lots of challenges, and there is no way you cannot overcome this one. Believe; tap your inner strength, willpower, and your invincible summer.
