“Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing is so gentle as real strength.”– St. Francis de Sales

 

One day I was walking home when my eye caught this iron fence that looked like a mini me Superman had tried to escape the confinement of this parking lot. It made me think about strength, being strong, and how we view the term strong.

How do we show our strength…is it in a need to show no fear and plow head strong into something that scares the shit right out of you? Do you build up your physical muscles but forget to build up your emotional, spiritual muscles? Or do we show our strength by simply getting up to another day and starting anew and letting yesterday’s battle go? Do we reach out in compassion and not judgement to others? Do we allow our vulnerable side to be our stronghold?

 It gets hard and oh so exhausting to be that Superhero that feels as they have to be “on” all the time and never allow others to be strong for them. Let someone else carry the load with you or even for you. 

 It’s ok to ask for help from others or to say no to yet another project. Care for yourself first so you can care for others. We don’t have to go it alone. Reach out and share your strength with someone today….be it to hold them up or to simply hold on to them.
