That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
You are never given more than you can handle.
Before every breakthrough is a breakdown.
After a period of darkness, there will be light.
Nothing with value comes easy.
Everything happens for a reason.
If you're not growing, you're dying.
In order to get the good, we will also get the bad.
Comfort equals mediocrity.
I embrace these declarations as my truth for I've watched them all play out in my life - the strength I acquire daily from living with an unsettled heart, the beautiful people that arrived at a time I felt so alone, the power I've built up inside following each painful moment, the self awareness and authenticity that has grown within, the balance of celebrations and disappointments that together lead to appreciation, the feelings of gratitude and list of valuable learnings that stem from experiences both dark and bright.
Logically I understand. Logically I see. Logically I know. Logically I can wrap my head around it all - how, what, where, when, and why.
It's my heart, my emotional center, my primary source of being, the driving force of all my actions and day to day feelings that's in need of more time, more convincing that I am ok and everything is exactly as it should be.
