There are still many days that I feel like the weakest person on the planet.
I think it’s in my DNA.
I’m weakened by my insecurities, my fears, judgements by others.
I’m guilty of being plagued by my weakening thoughts and if you’re someone like me, and I know there has to be others out there, these thoughts can be debilitating.
It’s taken me a long time to recognize that my weaknesses are actually helping me to find my strength.
Trust me, there are days I still struggle, days where I want to stay in bed, days where it’s almost impossible to stare at the reflection looking back at me in the mirror.
Everyday that I’ve overcome the weakness of that particular day and made it to the next . . .
I’m building my strength.
I used to run 8 miles on the treadmill without blinking an eye.
Now I run 4 miles with what feels like lead legs.
My thoughts want me to believe that I’m weak but I run those 4 miles anyways
because . . .
maybe next week it will be 5, then next month it will be 6
and before you know it I’ll be stronger than I was before.
I’m not where I once was and there are so many reasons why that can make me feel weak, but the strength that I have found from feeling weak is something I would never trade.
I felt weak, but I did it anyway.
I felt weak, but I got up and faced the day anyway.
When you look back on those moments in your life that you felt so weak you weren’t sure you could take another step . . .
Feel the strength in knowing that you did.
We are all capable of greatness.
When you are feeling weak . . . do it anyways . . . it is only from weakness that we truly find our strength.
