Do you ever just breathe in and thank __________ (insert whomever, whatever here) that the hard part is over? I do, and because I endured it, I’m that much stronger for it.
Today it was a workout. Other days the hard stuff include the people I meet, the people I’m missing, the hormonal and irrational thoughts and feelings, lack of sleep, feeling stuck. There is struggle, but there is also growth, and for all of it, often in hindsight, I am thankful.
