S is for...

Strong

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.

I am a firm believer that people are stronger than they think they are. Some people have various experiences that test their emotional strength and most of them would say that they came out stronger because of that trial.

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.

You are right, people are stronger than they think they are.
