Strength = hanging on for dear life

Strong people are the ones that struggle but finish. The ones that don't think they can make it and collapse at the finish line. The ones that keep trying the things that they once believed they had no right to consider.

When you admire those that effortlessly complete challenges, remember that it isn't a challenge for them anymore. Stop admiring these people; admire the battlers at the back of the pack that finish after everyone has packed up and gone home, that quietly celebrate that they beat their toughest component: themselves, the ones that they will meet the next challenge with open sacrifice and empty glory.

For they are strong.

And so are you.
