I was asked why I started this blog, and I won’t be a complete liar and say it was my idea. I stared this blog because it was a class that I was required to take at college. I never really knew what blogging was before taking this class, but I can say that as soon as I knew I had to take it “Connect thru Strength” was the subject I wanted to write about. Through my life I have had several hard to handle situations, which have actually all happened in the past 6 years. It is how I got through these situations, and how I have changed because of them, that I am so excited about. I surprised myself more times than I can count when instead of lying down and giving up, which would have been the easy thing to do, I kept pushing through. I had no idea I was capable of doing some of the things I have done.
My little Rant
I am a believer in “everything happens for a reason” and that the challenges in life are meant to pushing you so that you may thrive. I am a believer that you are never given a challenge that you cannot handle, and that life is not meant to live with regrets. The decisions we make we are meant to live with, and the lessons we learn are meant to stay with us so that next time we can make better choices. Everyone we meet, see on the street, stand next to in line, are meant to affect by us just being there. So next time you see someone struggling to open a door, or carry something to their car, or putting a shopping cart away, go help them. It takes an extra 2 minutes out of your day, but believe me when I say, you will keep that person thinking for a few hours about what you just did to help them. Then maybe they will do their job and pay it forward.
