Something that has really humbled and motivated me in the last week is realising a powerful and unexplainable anchored strength within my soul. It’s a kind of strength that can always be found when I need it most and it never ceases to secure and refuel me when my gauge drops past empty.
Have you ever felt this way? Don’t worry girl, for you are not alone.
This Monday Motivation is focused around seeking strength, even in the toughest of times. For those times when you feel like the forces of life are constantly knocking you down. You know, the whole moving one step forward and getting pushed two steps back. When you fall six times, you still stand for a seventh?
Do you know what I mean?
For me, I have fully adapted to the fact that my life somehow magnetises more adversities and battles than usual. (Forgive me for the analogy; my quirky brain works this way). It is like no sooner have I trudged my way through a valley and conquered a mountain, am I faced with an even greater valley and larger mountain to defeat!
It’s a never-ending cycle that I don’t expect will ever end. But despite the tough times, the coolest thing about this ebb and flow of life is that I would not have it any other way! In fact, it has made me more knowledgeable, wiser, stronger, motivated, inspired and content than I ever was before.
That is the beauty of facing obstacles; it makes the spirit, mind and body stronger. The refining that happens to a person through the experiences they face, equips them with a kind of courage and strength that hadn’t once been there before. And that is the anchored strength I am talking about. The strength that keeps you calm amidst the ebb and flow of life!
“Everything you are learning is preparing you for something else”.
If you are at a tough juncture in life, don’t feel discouraged. Instead muster some faith and give praise for the strength that is being built within you to conquer whatever may come your way.
Have you ever experienced this kind of strength rise within you?
If so, when has that faithful reservoir of strength helped you most?
