Every day I’m stronger than before.

I’ve had some rocky moments this last week.  Moments where I KNEW I was fine and moments where I just wanted to hide from the world.  I’m not perfect.  you ALL know that.  but what I am… without a shadow of a doubt… is Strong.  and sometimes I forget that.  Sometimes I forget how far I’ve come.

Yes, this sucks.  but I’m stronger than that.

I also have learned something so empowering that I have to share it here if for no other reason than to remind myself when I forget.  No one and No thing can fill my heart more than it already is.  Yes, it feels broken at times…what I refer to as “fleeting moments of crazy” but in the stillness and silence after the tears are dry, I know that I am whole.  I am strong.

I love the fact that I can not turn my emotions on and off with a switch.  I love that when I love, I love wholly and completely and that will never change.  that means that when relationships end it will hurt and I’m ok with that too.  I also know that no matter what, feeling these emotions is part of what makes me who I am.

I have no clue what the future holds, but I know I’m gonna be fine.  I’m already fine.  and by fine, I don’t mean

  9. Staying strong is the hardest part of any of life’s battles; sounds like you’re going to come through your situation with strength and wisdom.

  10. I have been a bit MIA dealing with my own state of affairs (sadness about my body not being 100%) but am sad to read that you have been less than ideal lately. Whatever is going on I hope passes and leaves you better than when it started. xoxo

  11. Dude. You are the strongest lady I know and you totally kick ass.

    Also, I would listen to Christina Aguilera’s “Stronger” if I were you. Seems to fit this situation.
