Reflections on Mental Toughness + Grit

Reflections on Mental Toughness + Grit

Today was a hard one mentally. Pushing through things I don’t want to. Fighting through things that hurt. I struggle sometimes and this mental toughness project I’m doing makes you face things you push down. I have a highlight saved on my instagram with a little more in depth of what I’m talking about.

But as I was on our road finishing up, the very last paint brush we have was right in front of me and if you know me at all, you know how special these are to me, how they are all through my branding/what I do, who they remind me of, etc.

Not that it was, but it seemed as if it was saved for me today-like God was saying, here, I see you. I’ve got you. Keep on fighting, you can do this through me ONLY.

And that’s the point my friends. Our “toughness” and strength comes from Him-no where else.

I’m going to miss seeing these. They’ve always been my favorite. Some call them weeds, but I’ve always seen them as beautiful. They aren’t able to survive on their own. Their roots work themselves into other plants to gather their nutrients for a short time and then they are gone. They remind me of myself too, I can’t survive on my own. Like me, they are imperfect. But, it’s almost the end of their season. Sort of like this weak one I’m going through.

This is your reminder that your flaws and struggles are an opportunity to draw near to Him and gain a strength that only comes from our Heavenly Father.
