“Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.”
How often do we find ourselves in situations we are not sure we can overcome? When struggles ensue that seem vast and perhaps insurmountable, we come face to face with the choice to either back down and give up or to push harder. Could it be that consistency, hard work, late hours, and coming up against our fears and limitations are not in vain? Maybe it is the act and process of striving for what we want that empowers us to do even more. When we engage with what challenges us, while in pursuit of our goals and dreams, we awaken an opportunity to experience and see ourselves in a different way. Often these situations bring us to new depths in understanding of our potential and tests the limits of our capabilities. The choice to take on adversity as a welcomed challenge versus a burdensome necessity has shown me levels of growth and freedom I’d never experience prior. Such a shift in perspective can be extraordinary and inspirational for those who are fortunate enough to realize it. Perhaps building our internal strength (our connection to self and inner drive) could ignite a similar spark in others to experience their version of the same.
