Strength, Courage and Wisdom

When I first heard these lyrics come out of the lips of India Arie, something in my spirit took flight. It is, to this day, my main mantra. Three simple words can have such a strong affect.

Strength: To carry the weight of the consequences of your emotions and actions. To never succumb to others. To succeed when you are expected not to.

Courage: Being you, unafraid and untainted. Being a leader in your on life and in others. Boldly venturing into the great unknown.

Wisdom: Cognizant and insightful. Knowing what to do and when to do it.

We can all find these qualities within ourselves, and we can all make the decision to nurture them.

Like the song goes, “It’s been inside of me, all along”.
