You Are Stronger Than You Think

"We are like the little branch that quivers during a storm, 
doubting our strength and forgetting we are the tree -- 
deeply rooted to withstand all of life's upheavals." 

We all undergo challenging moments.  Moments that feel like they can make or break us.  They may not always actually BE that powerful, but the fact that they FEEL that powerful is enough to make us doubt ourselves.

It is so much easier to feel strong during the good times.  But the fact of the matter is, it's who we are during the challenging times that really matters the most.  We have to remember we are stronger than we think.

It's easy to feel like a tree branch that's about to break during stormy times.  But that isn't who we have to be.  We are much more rooted than that.  We have weathered many storms before.  This is not our first.  We have survived those in our past; we will survive this one too.

Thought of the Day:  When going through challenging times, remember you are stronger than you think.  Remember that you are the tree, not the branch that quivers in a storm.  You have the power to withstand anything!

Have a great day!

    So true! Sometimes we are so caught up we allow our circumstances to paralyze our own inner power. We are so much stronger than we realize :)
