The Secret To Being Mentally Strong — May 16, 2020

The Secret To Being Mentally Strong

Everyone has the ability to build mental strength, but most people don’t know how. We spend a lot of time talking about physical strength and physical health, but much less time on mental strength and mental health.

We can choose to perform exercises that will help us learn to regulate our thoughts, manage our emotions, and behave productively despite our circumstances – the 3 basic factors of mental strength. No matter what your goals are, building mental strength is the key to reaching your greatest potential. ~ Amy Morin

“Fear robs you of your freedom to make the right choice in life that can bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. On the other side of fear, lies freedom. If you want to grow, you need to be brave and take risks. If you’re not uncomfortable, you’re not growing.”
~Roy T. Bennett

Rainbows are full of love, peace, dreams & hopes.
~Anthony T.Hincks

Looking around my neighbourhood I can see many photos and handpainted posters of Rainbows stuck to windows, a wonderful tribute to all the hardworking men and woman of our  National Health Service.  Rainbows are a symbol of peace and a promise that all will be well.  They’re often visible after a storm when that first light breaks through those dark clouds signifying that the storm is over.  They may have a different meaning to different people, some folklore says there’s a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, some see rainbows the same way they see shooting stars, cross your fingers, make a wish and that wish will come true but for the most part, rainbows are a symbol of hope!

“Trials in life help us to grow by making us not only better persons than we were before but by making us stronger. The challenge to become a better version of yourself  is not dwelling too long on your trials but rather, Focusing the good that lies ahead”                    ~ Etta D. Richards

I grew up hearing my grandparents and many in their age group speaking about Hurrican Besty,  for them it was one of the worse hurricanes to have passed through the Bahamas during the 60s. They would speak about palm trees being snapped in half, massive flooding resulting in people being trapped in their homes for days. Here in Scotland they speak about Snowstorms and flooding, a few years ago I experienced one of those snowstorms and yes it was pretty bad, it snowed for what felt like forever, schools, businesses were forced to shut. But then it stopped snowing. In all that we’ve experienced many of us have persevered, we made it through because everything comes to an end and in the aftermath, we always look back on the storms, the floods with gratitude that we made it through.

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.”
~Tony Schwartz
