I'm grateful this morning to wake up seeing strong symbolism in my dreams again. I'm grateful to know the truth; that the biggest lie we ever tell ourselves is that we are weak. There is not one person on this planet that is weak. We may have weaknesses but those do not define us they are only stepping stones to overcome, or maybe to embrace. The weaknesses we perceive can become our strengths when we acknowledge them. Tenderness is not a weakness. Love is not a weakness. Compassion is not a weakness. But submission is neither compassion nor love. Sacrificing your needs to help someone else compensate for their weaknesses or fears is not healthy for either person involved. It reinforces that the weakness in not merely one aspect but is a defining trait in them. And maybe sacrificing your needs is your weakness. I know it has been a struggle of mine. Today I am grateful to stand in the truth. I'm grateful to be loving and compassionate to the people I meet without falling trap to the label of weak. I'm grateful to allow others to acknowledge their own struggles and to allow them to fight their own battles and find their own strength. I'm grateful to be able to do this as I find my own strength in knowing that I am not needed for their success, I am only one tool along their path. And I am so so very grateful to everyone who has done the same for me and allowed me to stand in my strength and not hide behind weaknesses. How can you stand in the truth of your strength today? How can you allow the ones you love
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
