"Do not pray for an easy life; Pray for the strength to endure a difficult one"- Bruce Lee
We hear this phrase all the time; BE STRONG.
The meaning behind it is more than just physical strength but rather, mental strength too. A strong mind can be your best tool when enduring times of struggle and even times of fear.
It seems so simple; But just two small words can make a huge impact on someone.
Maybe you've used it to help someone seeking support during a time of weakness or maybe someone else has used it to help encourage you to find the strength you need.
When I hear the words, BE STRONG, I think of someone who doesn't necessarily have all the answers or doesn't always have it figured out but someone who won't give up no matter the circumstance. Anyone can give up; It is the easiest thing in the world to do. Especially when their world seems to be closing in around them. However, someone who chooses to continue to find the good, give grace and support others, now that's strength.
"You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice"- Bob Marley
