The woman in the mirror has dark circles, and some new wrinkles. She also has a great smile and a twinkle in her eyes. Life has thrown her a few curveballs, yet she has persevered. She is strong.
This isn’t a physical strength. This is a mental strength. A strength of remaining the calmest person in the room, no matter the storm. An ability to overcome no matter the loss or pain. I have the strength to keep pushing forward.
This strength was a gift I was given at birth. The lessons of life have educated me and helped me to grow stronger. I look in the mirror and I am overcome with pride. I know the storms I have weathered and made it through.
When friends and family look at me I hope they admire my strength. It is the reflection of myself I want others to see.
What is your strength?
