I would bet money on the fact that you are stronger then you realize!
I recently had a conversation with a client where we went back in time to see all that they had been through & the impact that it all has had on them. Most people go through tremendous challenges without ever giving themselves credit for all they had gotten through.
This is a reoccurring topic that comes up frequently in sessions. It is important to give ourselves credit for an experience & to look at it for what it taught us. Most of us move through life rather unconsciously. We stuff down the difficult things & power through, however, we miss the gems that are available to help us grow. We can only find the gems by looking for them in the muck & heartbreak that we all experience.
We all have moments in life that we think we will never get through. Maybe it is a divorce, the death of a loved one, starting a new business & much more. But yet, here you are, reading this & having survived all of it. The death of a loved one is one of the most challenging things to get through, but I guarantee you will get survive it & there will come a point where you think of the loved one & smile.
I challenge you to take stock of your life. Go back as far as you wish and examine what you have experienced, how you got through it & what you learned by it. You will be surprised to realize how strong & powerful you really are! This is your homework for this month.
It is important for you to realize that you CAN in fact handle anything that life throws at you & that you can actually thrive in the midst of it all!
