This morning’s ab circuit was hard. Fighting to overcome the demons that once lived inside me was much harder. I never imagined being grateful for the challenges that broke me, but without them I would never have had the opportunity to heal and discover this inconceivable strength that we are all destined to find. Whenever I lack perspective I remind myself of where I’ve come from, and all of a sudden those last few seconds no longer seem impossible. I now know “I can.” I don’t let the challenges of my past define me and neither should you. Why? Because that was so yesterday.
