Silent Strength

Lately I have been thinking about strength,

in terms of where I come from, and what I was born into.

I am not tough, I have never been, nor have I pretended to be, but I am strong.

In our world, the strength of a woman is so different from that of a man. And that is okay. We need to lean on and look to one another in differences of strength.

Whenever I am in doubt of whether I can overcome a situation, often I remind myself of where I come from and what I continue to be a part of.

For the first time, I am really beginning to own my strength, not just as a woman, but as a human being. It has been incredibly grounding and humbling, as it always is when connecting to the source.-tM
