strength and determination

It doesn't get easier, you get stronger.

Saucony posted this on their Instagram account, and I paused to reflect on that. Of course, that applies to running and yoga and exercise and training of any sort. But it also applies to so much more:

Like Gracie being a part of me apart from me.

Like being the hard ass that I need to be for my kids when I really just want to snuggle them and give them everything in the world they ask for.

Like standing up for yourself.

Like mustering up the self-control to eat a salad for lunch every day.

Like figuring out a job no one taught you how to do.

Like finishing your college degree. 

Like anything in life that requires discipline to do well (and that is just about everything).

It doesn't get easier, you get stronger.
