“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”
— Ben Okri
The human spirit is amazingly resilient, so long as we remember that we are all stronger than we often give ourselves credit for being.
Some days the world just seems like it is out to get you. One test after another, challenging and pushing you. These tests are designed to measure your faith in many things, including yourself and your ability to deal with life’s unwelcomed jabs and uppercuts that can put you on the ropes.
At some point in life we’ve all had to overcome, to endure, to transform…relying upon hidden sources of inspiration and strength that we never even knew we had. Those hidden sources remain within, always available to help us move forward and past that which threatened to bring us down.
At times of adversity and uncertainty, embrace the source of strength which lies within you. Yes, you really are stronger than you think you are.
It’s a great day to be you!
