|Stand by Rascal Flatts|
Have You Been Through Difficult Times, but Still Find Yourself Willing to 'Stand'?
If there were a way to get to the rainbow without having to experience the rain, would we grow, would we learn? As 'Stand' by Rascal Flatts articulates, our struggles are only as big as we allow them to be. Once we decide that enough is enough, that's when we find out what we're truly made of....Sugar and Spice, sure why not...mixed with a little Hot Pepper Sauce for bravery.
Have You Learned to Be a Stronger Person?
Have you mastered inner strength over the years? It's difficult to understand why things have to be so incredibly challenging, but not so much when we understand that we are ultimately responsible for our own choices.
Wrapping our mind around the concept of taking responsibility for our choices (as adults), especially when those life choices haven't been the wisest ones, takes guts. Our pride can take a a hit when we self-admit our own failings: From choosing the wrong life partner, the wrong job, the wrong friends, addiction, being nasty and more!
Our choices are giving us the results we currently see. Changing our choices will change our results. When we 'Stand' we're accepting the change that has to happen - whether someone else initiated that change, or whether we were the ones who elected to change - it doesn't matter, it's the acceptance that moves us forward into a new and exiting chapter.
Standing Up and Surviving Change Is the Biggest Gift You Can Give
