The Indomitable Spirit of You

To know where you’re going, it sure helps to know where you’ve been. You’ve come a long way baby! You sound determined. You look determined. You know how to fake it ’til you become it.

You’ve been building your life one step at a time. Just when you take 3 steps backward you turn it around and take 4 steps forward. You’re getting closer to the person you want to be every day.

You’ve proven you’re made of true grit. As you look back over all your hard work, you can see it right—your courage and unsinkable spirit? Time and time again you’ve overcome huge obstacles like fatigue, depression, and fear.

Sure, there’ve been times you said you were drowning. You really believed it and saw no hope. You even sunk to the bottom but to your complete surprise came up for air again. Again, and again and again. And each time you said you couldn’t—you wouldn’t.

You’re always surprising yourself. You always think this is the one time you’ll never rise up. But, surprise, surprise, you just aren’t sinkable!160_F_101557789_i00dQ7e9QM0xVjfcABD1OpMNBlp9SN60

I see you. I know who you’re becoming. I’m not alarmed when you take 3 steps backward. You’re stronger than you know. I’m honored to be on this journey with you. You are loved, special and important. You remember that…

Who are you becoming today? Sometimes you just gotta say I’ve had enough. I want to live my life. And if it’s just not that easy…Fake it ’til you become it.

  1. These words are like a salute to the humanity in us all. Everyone is on the same journey – going through the travails and joys of life with each passing moment. This post gives me the nudge to remember that and recognize our collective grace, resiliency and strength.

  2. I’m becoming a better version of me. I’m still on the journey to find that improved self, but I’m slowly picking up things that I like. Over the past couple weeks I find myself saying that I like this, but OCD doesn’t. I’m excited for the day that I meet myself, who I really am when OCD just naturally becomes “so what.”

  3. Wow I really needed this today! Thank you for these uplifting words. I am becoming someone who does not let OCD boss around and someone who cares enough about themselves to practice healthy habits such as eating right and not procrastinating!

  4. I am becoming a person that is not going to allow myself to fall down the rabbit hole every time things get tough. It sucks down there. It helps me to remind myself that there are people that have it way worse than I do.
