The Paradox of Strength.

Such a great inspirational piece, it needs to be reblogged since the message is so relevant!

Thriving Under Pressure

Some lessons happen over a lifetime. Others happen in an instant.

Either way, the paradox of strength is that develops though pain.

Each misfortune cultivates a renewed appreciation.

Each obstacle fosters a new level of perseverance.

Each sadness teaches a greater depth of compassion.

Each challenge harvests a new field of possibilities.

We must all fall down to rise up.

Again and again and again.
