Stronger

These past three weeks have been such a learning experience and adventure.  What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger- even when you feel unsafe and are constantly walking on eggshells.

I have been doing my best to focus on work, stay grounded, happy and peaceful.  Sometimes people will walk all over you and it’s not worth a fight.  I learned this from my mother; I never understood why she wouldn’t immediately grow defensive or argue when people would cross her… but now I do.  Sometimes it is better to let it roll off your back.

I’ve been learning how to handle difficult people and situations, but there comes a time when you have to simply make a graceful exit for your own piece of mind.  My life has been so full, complete with supportive people, a strong spiritual connection and opportunities in front of me.  Today I feel much stronger than I did a month ago, and through the tragedies and turbulence, I am better learning how to handle life on life’s terms.

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

These past few weeks have taught me to remain calm in any given situation, whether I’m dealing with someone taking their emotions out on me, getting harassed on the street, or simply sitting with anxiety. With prayer and meditation, I’ve been able to stay grounded, take action, and enjoy the things that make me feel at peace- going to the library, having lunch in the park, or simply embracing the beauty around me.

Life is one big adventure, and each day I am growing a little wiser, and a little stronger.
