Rising Strong: Finding Strength in Life's Challenges

Rising Strong: Finding Strength in Life's Challenges

Ever heard the saying, 'Bad things happen in threes'? Well, let me tell you, my recent experiences have certainly proven that theory right.

It all started with the passing of my best friend's father, followed by my mom's car accident, and then the heartbreaking loss of our Mimi, my mother-in-law. All of this happened within the span of just a few days.

I won't lie—it knocked me down hard. For the first time in nearly a year, I couldn't bring myself to write my weekly Thought Gem blog post. I was in the middle of working on it while also trying to find a way to say goodbye to Mimi. Suddenly, it just didn't feel right to share my usual messages of positivity and inspiration.

But you know what I realized through it all? Life is messy. It's unpredictable. And sometimes, it downright sucks. But here's the thing—we have a choice. We can either let those tough times break us, or we can rise above them, stronger and wiser than before.

We all face challenges and setbacks, but it's how we pick ourselves up and keep going that matters most. Instead of letting adversity knock us down, we can choose to rise strong and find meaning in our struggles.

In the midst of my own grief, I discovered valuable lessons that have made me stronger, kinder, and wiser. Each hardship became an opportunity for growth, teaching me resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity.

So, I want to challenge you this week.
When life throws its curveballs your way (and trust me, it will), take a moment to pause and reflect. Look for the lessons in each experience, no matter how small they may seem. And most importantly, keep going.

Whether it's a small setback or a major obstacle, remember that you have the strength within you to overcome it. Keep moving forward, one step at a time, and never lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel.

As the great Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Ms. Diana Krall sang, 'Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again'. 🎶

Together, let's weather the storm, rise strong and face whatever life throws our way.

With love and resilience,

xoxo Tracy
