“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.” ~ Leah LaBelle; Canadian-American singer.
“Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as think.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson; American essayist, lecturer, and poet.
I think that we all must remember that we are here, in this very moment, reading this and trying to better further our own lives, for a mighty reason; whatever was in your past, extremely traumatizing or just painful, shaped you into who you are today, and maybe you do not notice but you have become a little stronger and this is why you are here, perhaps still lost in your way or perhaps really strong in your way, but here nonetheless.
I know that life tests us, it tests our determination and inner strength, to make us stronger, to prepare us for what lies ahead in our lives. I personally take two or three minutes as a habit every night before falling asleep to remember my past and the people and events part of my past, I remind myself that all the people that injured me emotionally and mentally were sent to my life at that particular time for a divine reason.
That reason might not seem obvious to you at the moment, but if you are like me you will stop and analyze carefully all your past encounters with a smile upon your face, while reminding yourself that you are what you choose to be; therefore, whatever you have experienced in your hard past, you can choose if you still suffer that past or let it make you stronger, you can choose if you allow frustration to overtake your mind or if you allow acceptance to give you peace and self-love.
