Queen of Your Own Life

An Iron Will and a Steel Backbone

She had a way of making the hard things seem easy. They weren't but she had an iron will and a backbone made of steel. - Queenisms™

Other people’s lives look so much easier than ours sometimes. They’re not. They just look that way. Everyone has a story and most of their stories include stumbles, wounds, disappointments, pain, sadness and regret or anger or both. They also include joy, laughter, triumph, and rewards. How do we know? Because all of those are a part of a life well lived. Our burdens are not lessened by dramatically, publicly beating ourselves up. Our joy is not heightened because we post about it on Facebook. We are not alone in either or joy or our sorrow. These are all a part of life. We need the courage and strength to endure, overcome, survive and thrive and we need the wisdom to do so in a way that does not add to the chaos around us. Three cheers to the iron wills that make us show up for life every day, even when we’re wounded. Three cheers for the backbones made of steel that make us stand up when we just want to lay down. Let’s celebrate those attributes today and recognize that we possess them and they are among our most valuable gifts.
