Finding Your Inner Strength
I'm writing today's blog for a good friend of mine who has been going through one tough time after another. She was emotionally frail when we first met 15 years ago and was just unable to cope when things went wrong. We always talked about the power that lives within us, which sometimes gets covered up but regardless is always there. Last week she lost her apartment of 25 years and has a month to find another one. To make matters worse, her boyfriend of 8 years met someone else. She told me she's a mess at the moment but she's going to be okay because she's been up the creek before and now knows how to paddle. I am so proud of her.
Things are always changing but that's the real beauty of life. Life is unpredictable and that's okay because we can't control everything (and trust me, those words come from a control freak). I've learned that when we start to develop the ability to accept what comes and see the positive from it, we are able to develop the tools to move forward. When we accept what’s going on, we can deal with the next crises or situation differently and see that challenge from a whole new angle.
We are all born with this wonderful spirit and often it's hard to remember it’s there deep within us, always burning. Life is wonderful my friends, and with all that goes on, never forget that.
Coco & Cyd support women as they feel their inner strength or try to find. It is not always easy, but know the magic is always in us. It is important for us to understand the Coco & Cyd woman not just in terms of the physical but also the emotional. We write blogs in hopes to connect us closer to you and hopefully build your connection so that you feel closer to the Coco & Cyd community.
I'd love to hear your story or two. We can share your survival tactics with others or keep it just between us. Have a great week!
Thank you so much for joining us today!
Stop by Tuesday for our next blog post
Quote to take with you for the week:
“Go back?" he thought. "No good at all! Go sideways? Impossible! Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" So up he got, and trotted along with his little sword held in front of him and one hand feeling the wall, and his heart all of a patter and a pitter.”
-J.R.R Tolkien, The Hobbit
