You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. ~ unknown
Be Strong…..those words today have a very different meaning for me than they used to have. To be strong used to mean for me keeping a stiff upper lip, stand tall, holding in my feelings and keeping a brave face. Other people have always have seen me as being strong.
Today I see being strong as an opening into my inner core, allowing my greatness to shine. I express myself openly and honestly and as Brené Brown says that strength comes from being vulnerable. This is the paradox to be really strong you have to be really vulnerable.
This morning I wrote these following words in my journal, after painting the heart below and then meditating:
“Today I will I will be strong and embrace my greatness.”
That helped put me in a higher state of vibration and raised my spirits.
My Strong Heart ~ Suzie Cheel
7 quotes to embrace being strong:

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. – Mahatma Gandhi
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along”. – Eleanor Roosevelt

I am strong, creative and free, accepting and loving me and you ~ Suzie Cheel
I wrote these words many years ago at an Insight 11 The Opening Heart Seminar and I still use them today. They came from a deep heart awakening exercise and I remember at the time being encouraged to repeat these words daily in the mirror 30 times 3 x a day. What I know is that when I am faced with a challenge, where I need to be strong these words always there to remind me to keep going and move towards feeling great.
