Let’s talk about Strength today.
No, I am not talking about the muscle kind of strength. I am talking about the strength that dwells inside each and every one of us.
The strength of the heart, of the soul. The power that drives you to move on and survive when times are really hard. That feeling that pushes you through hardships and gives you the courage to hold your head up high whenever Life kicks you down. The force that enables you to do amazing things when everything seems lost.
That kind of Strength.
We all know it, some better than others. The rough times when Life just doesn’t seem to give us a break. When everything falls apart before your eyes. The times your life crumbles beneath your feet.
Those are the times we learn about our inner warrior, the strength that will allow us to keep breathing and fight for better times. A better life.
We can find it in ourselves, in the encouragement of a friend or family member, in the eyes of our loved ones and even in the smile of a stranger.
The thing about this ‘strength’ is that we never know how strong we really are until we need to be strong.
When we were told in advance what kind of struggles we can expect, most of us will say: ‘I will never get through that.’
But the truth is we can.
The human soul is capable of amazing things and allows us to survive almost anything. Even when all seems lost and you are certain that this time you can’t cope with it. When you have the feeling you are in pieces and just can’t go on fighting.
Believe me, you can.
You are all much stronger then you give yourself credit for. You just have to believe in yourself, even when nobody else does and your dreams seem unreachable.
Just never give up.
I will dedicate the next poem and pictures to everyone, every warrior, who has a battle to fight right NOW.
You can do it, I know you can.
I am a warrior, I will fight my way through life.
I will protect the ones I love.
I will never give up.
I am a warrior, no one can get me down.
I will set myself free.
I will never stop.
I am a warrior, I’ll take on every challenge.
I will keep you safe.
I will never quit.
I am a warrior, I bow to no one.
I will keep my head up.
I will never break.
I am a warrior, wounded by life.
But I am still standing.
I am still alive!
Lots of love,
