Do you sometimes forget how strong you are?

Do you forget how much you've experienced and already overcome?

Have you ever wished for someone to come and make it all go away?

That person exists. And you already know who they are.

They are you.

I am sure most of us have experienced those moments when we feel we can't go on. Those times when it seems to come at you from all sides, when you just want to scream at the universe and say "WTF, please give me a break, before I crumble".

Sometimes, it comes all at once. Sometimes you'll be recovering from the last "incident" and, just as you're getting your feet under you, another one comes along and pulls the freshly woven rug from beneath you.

Isn't it exhausting?

I bet in those moments, many of you have prayed for something, someone, to come and save you.

But let me tell you something - the person who saves you, is always you.

Yes, if you get help from others, it seems that someone else is doing the saving. But it is you who asked for the help. You who accepted the help. You who found a way, you who became vulnerable enough to open up to the possibility that you can't do it all alone.

If only you knew how much strength there is in that!

There are so many of us who have a whole heap of internalised shame that prevents us from asking for help. Perhaps you asked for something when you were young, and were made to feel that it was too much, that it was inconvenient, you were dismissed, that you should be able to solve it yourself - it can make you feel abandoned and rejected, and it begins to feel very unsafe to ask for the help you need, and becomes kind of triggering as a result, and leave us with a wonky nervous system. All of our internalised judgements come up, and we tell ourselves we can push through on our own.

But there is a limit to what we can do alone - and I promise, if you're brave enough to ask for help when you need it, there are those who love you, who have been desperately waiting for you to ask, to be ready to be helped, and will be glad to do what they can for you. Knowing that you are supported helps build up your resilience - when we know we are supported, we know we can make it. We know we don't have to come up with all of the answers, and we can relax into that feeling of security and community, allowing our inner strength to grow.

When you are aware of and acknowledge your inner strength, you shine with it - Tracy Christina Art

When you are aware of, and acknowledge your inner strength, you shine with it. You know you're powerful. You know you create your own destiny. You know when to keep your own counsel, and you know when to ask for help - and you do it, even if you're afraid to. Because with that inner strength comes a deep trust in self, and the knowledge that your success rate for overcoming adversity is so far 100%, because you're here, reading this right now. And I wanna tell you how proud I am that you are, and I know how much of a struggle it is sometimes.

You are stronger than you know.

Wiser than you realise.

Far more brilliant than you can possibly imagine.

Time to rise, and shine!
