-Marcus Aurelius

Special thanks to TC. We’ll be sharing her essays and photos again this week. Here’s Day 6 of 10, (Gems 7.81):

It is sometimes fun to look back and reflect on how much we have grown. This inspiration was written while on my trip to Spain to walk the last 100km of the Camino.

Be Strong
There are times in our lives we need to draw on our inner strength not only for ourselves but for those we love. They are looking to us to help them in their time of need and may be unable to help themselves. It is not always easy being strong for others. Over time being strong is draining and takes a toll on our minds, bodies and spirits. It requires a different type of strength to say “I need to take a step back; to rest, relax and rejuvenate”. If we wait too long all our strength will have drained away and we will be unable to help anyone including ourselves. Be strong with awareness of what is needed, how much we are able to give and when to take that time for our self. Being strong while being gentle, kind and with balance so that all will receive what they need without risk of leaving anyone depleted.

Looking back to May 1, 2017. Please feel free to share, if you are so inspired.
