During a recent internet discussion I had occasion to look up the dictionary definitions of the words strength and strong. Below are links to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary for both words.
As you read through both definitions it is clear that having strength and being strong has to do with much more than muscles. Both definitions discuss the ability to resist force or an attack; having moral or intellectual power; not mild or weak etc.
As you think about your life and what causes you stress I would hypothesize that the majority of the stressors could be dealt with by simply getting stronger. Strength of mind, strength of body, when well-balanced, can address most of life’s problems. I encourage you to think critically about your life, get strong, and move forward toward becoming the person that you have always wanted to be.
