Sweetness is readily accepted and rewarded. That makes it fairly easy for this recovering-people-pleaser to practice. I find joy in serving others, meeting needs and even in being the go-to girl at work. I like being described as sweet.
I haven't always identified myself as strong. In fact, there are times I feel so weak and ineffective that it's all I can do to put one foot in front of the other. That's okay. Yet as I've grown and learned, struggled and succeeded in some areas, I'm more confident that I am strong. Being strong doesn't mean an end to things that are painful or hard, but it does mean knowing I will survive them and there is life beyond any current trial.
I feel strong when I take care of myself emotionally, physically and spiritually. I feel strong when I make smart choices or let go of things that hold me back. I feel especially strong when I invite others into the journey with me. What makes you feel strong? How do you build strength? Do you think it's alright to feel weak?
