Day 83’s Topic: Strength.
One of my favorite quotes in the whole world is …
This was a quote I vividly recall being read by a valedictorian’s speech during my high school graduation.
At the time, I didn’t think much about it. I was too caught up in the thought that high school was ending and the exciting aspect of going to college waited for me around the corner. But over time, I learned what this quote really meant in its entirety.
I am strong. Well, more like I had to be, to make it this far in my journey.
When I felt like I was just scum for the entire universe to gawk at, discard and then ultimately be forgotten like I didn’t even matter, I had to realize how strong I could really be to keep fighting.
I couldn’t give up. I didn’t want to. I had to keep finding strength when everything made me feel weak and pathetic.
I can’t tell you how much word has meant to me when I have been seeking strength from all kinds of places.
Even at my worst, I had to find some sense of determination to look for things to make me feel strong, at least until I could muster up some form of willpower.
What can I say?
I can’t help but feel a bit proud of myself for toughening it out. Things haven’t been easy. In fact, I was outright miserable for various lengths of time. Lost in the confusion of life. Unfocused in regards of figuring out what needed to be done next.
But I found strength.
I am strong. I am strong enough to realize that I had to soldier up, bite the bullet, no matter how you want to say it, I had to keep muscling my way through one trial after the next like a brute until I could finally see some light at the end of the tunnel.
I am, however, still trying to hang in there. There is no easy solution for my problems.
But I am strong.
I am strong because I was given so many chances to rebuild from the ground up. I can’t waste it.
