Building inner strength is like doing push ups. 

You can't do it all at once...

But with a focused mind, if you do a little every day, you will see big results. 

That is the same with inner strength. You can't change everything all at once, but if you acknowledge and accept what is going on in your life, you will gain a new perspective and have more room to allow yourself to grow. 

From this point on, you'll begin to establish a new set of boundaries that are much more clear and will make it much easier for you to become the person you want to be.

As you through your journey, It's my hope at least one of these quotes about strength will give you the strength you need at the very moment, reminding you of what's important. 

And l inspiring you to be authentic, live healthily and lead a life that glows.
