Just as the muscles in One’s body, strength of spirit needs to be exercised. It is the harshest times in life that reveal One’s true depth of power and strongest will to survive. And because One is not in a constant state of struggle, it is not enough to wait for those moments to use our strength.
One needs to take care and cultivate their spirit, nourishing the roots of their soul with patience and healthy self-love. Only when One learns this practice will they then be able to handle hard times with great power and grace.
*Note to the One Reader*
Joyous family affairs briefly took my full attention away from my memorization project. But if I just Keep Interested and Nurture my Strength to continue, I will hold these words in my heart until I am grey. Almost there!..
