Sometimes, the light can seem so far away.
At times, we’re faced with unimaginable challenges that make us question ourselves, our life, and sometimes everything we believe.
But you’re stronger than you know. I’ve had my fair share of adversity over the last couple of years and I can tell you from personal experience that the darkness is overwhelming when we’re first hit with it, but it’s never as bad as it seems. Over time the dust settles and we’re left with the opportunity to learn and grow.
We have the incredible ability to not just come back from adversity each time we’re knocked down – but to become stronger for it. Each time we’re knocked down we learn something new, see things from a new perspective that gives us clarity, or gain the confidence to move passed what once paralyzed us.
You can weather the storm, no matter how bad it gets. So, here are some quotes to help remind you of just how invincible you are.
