When I thought of this word two things came to mind, fitness and an emotional state.
I have been big on motivational quotes and pictures lately and the above picture is one of my favorite quotes. All throughout my childhood I was heavy and I remember always wishing I was skinny.
Earlier this year I shared that one of my goals in 2012 was to become healthier. In my quest to eat healthy and exercise regularly, some of my views of how I wanted to look and how much I wanted to weigh have changed.
I have learned that the scale doesn't matter as long as I feel good in my clothes and continue to work on eating clean.
The movie Yes Man just came to mind and I think it's because if you shut yourself off from experiencing different things and not doing things you wouldn't normally do, you'd be living life behind a screen door, just looking on.
OK that was a tangent but I can think of a few experiences in my life that I thought I wouldn't be able to handle and sure enough I was stronger than I thought I was and made it through just fine.
