Thankful Thurs~ Being strong!

So last night I went out to one of my fav stores...the Nike outlet...I know I'm a workout geek and I'm ok with that! LOL!

I saw this shirt there which was SO fitting for me. Not only was it my fav colour but it said, " Strong is the new beautiful"...it took my breath away for a min when I saw it.

I of course am wearing it today and will probable wear it for the next week LOL! But I was thinking about it this morning about what being 'strong' meant. And that's when I realized what my Thankful Thurs was.....

....I am thankful to not only be strong physically but to be a strong woman on the inside now too. At the ripe old age of 32 I have learned to stand up for myself and for what is right. I didn't do that when I was younger. I was too scared about what people would think, if they would like me after and I didn't even know at one point in my life that I COULD stand up for myself.

So I am thankful that I am a whole person today and I LOVE it! I feel I have found a happy balance of standing up for myself and not being aggressive or rude about it. I have learned that sometime courage doesn't roar, sometimes courage is that voice at the end of the day that whispers, "I will try again tomorrow"

'Live in YOUR Awesome!'
