Strong Women Have Faced Challenges
“Women are like tea bags. You never know how strong they are until they are in hot water.”
Strong Women are not simply born. They are made by the storms they walk through.
How many of you can relate?
You may have heard the sayings that life isn’t happening TO you, but it is happening FOR you. Actually, this daily inspirational quote applies to both men and women. We all face challenges in life. It isn’t that we have challenges, it is how we face them that molds us. We have the choice for these challenges, or the obstacles in life, to make us either bitter or better.
I’ve always done my best to choose “better” and to treat my challenges as my teachers as a student of life. We can choose to be empowered by every experience we have in life.
I’ve weathered some significantly challenging and intense storms in the last decade or so. These experiences have molded me and required me to grow and become more resourceful and resilient. I’ve had failures, heart-breaks and intense loss and grief. I’ve seen and experienced things I would have never imagined. Often it is our biggest challenges that give us the insights, wisdom and knowledge to share and help others. There is an opportunity to turn our messes into messages to help others. That’s where I am right now. I’ve weathered the storms and I survived.
At this time, after taking quite a while to “be still”, pause, and contemplate how I might be of service to others, I have concluded the following. It my time to share what I have learned. It is time for me to be a content, wisdom and information creator—not just a consumer.
I’m looking for ways to share the tools and the wisdom teachings that I have learned that have sustained me, given me resiliency and more — even though I haven’t done it perfectly and have had some failures along the way.
I hope this message finds you healthy and well.
Have a great day!
