    I've made it through some tough events in my

    life - standing alone. I had no guidance no patents to tell me your doing great, I'm proud if you. I didn't have friends and grew up alone. What was meant for my harm God used for my victory. I stood alone but he gave me the strength and courage to go on. I realized I had a...

    Yesterday is but a dream,

    tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore, to this day.

    Why A Rose Has Thorns

    Once a long time ago, I heard a story about a man talking to his pastor who was working in his rose garden. The man was talking to his pastor about trusting in God's timing. The pastor pointed to one of the roses and asked him "Can you make that rose's delicate petals bloom?" of...

    My father says I'm resilient.

    He says it's probably a skill, or characteristic I developed in the face of brotherly provocation. My brothers can still be pretty intense, and my realising that whatever they do it's grounded in love for their sister I am never truly worried. I think resilience is the ability...

    The Wolf teaches us endurance,

    strategic planning,and perseverance. A wolf can run like the wind or be still as a stone. There is a time to be quiet like the stone, and a time to actively pursue aspirations.

    It's One of My Better Qualities.

    Life Had Taught Me...

    I know that I have great inner strength because of going through so much.. every problem I've come across, every abuse I've gone through, they all made me stronger. Now I believe that I can handle whatever life brings my way. It feels good.

    I suppose I do. Life keep putting up hurdles,

    yet I keep on going somehow. I don't know how but I do. I'm probably more stoic than I give myself credit for.

    but I never knew the extent of it until recently. I got a message from someone today, in my inbox. I could see that I had spoken to this person just a few weeks ago, and when I scrolled up to jog my memory, I was met with the words of a wounded woman. A woman who was...

    The Beat Of My Own Drum

    People haven't always been nice to me and I haven't been really able to fully integrate for a long time. Because I have a tendency to move to the beat of my own drum, I've had to call upon my own inner strength in order to lead the life I wanted. It's not that I lead an unusual...

    I hope it's not boastful to make this claim,

    but honest. I have a quiet confidence and resolve that sees me through most things. I do also occasionally still allow some things to get the better of me and lose it a bit, but not in the way or with the same frequency as they used to.

    I'm Strong Because I'm Weak

    I accredit my great inner strength to not only my will power, but my flaws as well; instead of pretending to be someone who's perfect, I acknowledge the fact that I'm not perfect, plus I'm working on my flaws, which is a source of strength for me. How so? I push myself to...

    Everyone Has It

    We all have our own crap to get through in life.  It may seem others have it easier or harder than we do, but I think we get exactly what we need.  Not like I think crap is great, I'd much prefer not to deal with it.  I'm just not sure I'd have learned...

    Life And The Thankyou Lessons.

    I often hear all of the negativity that surrounds poverty. I would not want anyone to feel that I think poverty is good, but I do want to say that a lot of good can come from not having a lot of material things and having to find ways to get what one really needs and not what one...

    It weakens all the time. It's a constant struggle to maintain inner strength and just not break down. I never doubt my strength will return because I won't allow for anything else. It's how I see myself, how I want to live and how I make it through my trials. I am strong and I...
