Mentally Strong

What does that mean? 

I have a reoccurring theme in my life. It is the desire to be incredibly mentally strong. 
Ever since I can remember I have had such an intense knowing that I wanted to be insanely mentally strong. 

I’m not sure why. 
It stems from that gut feeling and that unexplained deep knowing that I am meant to be this way. 

My life has very much so delivered. 
And the more I learn and grow the more I understand why it has delivered in such a strong way. 

We are what we think.
We are what our purpose is. 
We are what we feel. 

Being mentally strong is the backbone to everything I do. It is ingrained in me so deep it feels as if it is apart of every cell of my being. 

This type of feeling, this type of desire, this type of want creates an unparalleled pull. An energy so strong it does nothing but attract more of the like right back to me. 


Any time we want something in our life, the more intense the desire is, the deeper the knowing is, the more we feel as if we already have it, and the more we can embody the feeling of already having it, the quicker and stronger it will manifest into our reality once we start taking action.


To me, being mentally strong means a few things.
It means stability.
Independence.
The ability to return to a peaceful state of mind even when your outer world is complete chaos. 
Its the ability to calm yourself in an incredible intense situation that has your heart racing.  
It’s the ability to remember why you are doing something on the days where the pull to return back to an old way is just about stronger than you are. 

And that’s how you know you are growing. 

When the pull is so strong it taps your outer limit of strength on the shoulder forcing you to either give in, or stretch that strength and little farther than you ever have before. 


Becoming mentally strong means your limit is constantly tested; 
your hard days are a little harder, your lows a little lower…
enabling you to stretch and strengthen it a little more every time. 

But it means those good days are even better.

I will be forever grateful for this gut desire of being mentally strong. 

I feel it enables me to help those around me.
To help find their peace. 
Their clarity.
And to help them out of their lows. 
To show them it’s a process, it’s a learning, it’s a test to see how strong you’re choosing to be. 


Everything is balanced. 
There is an equal opposite to all. 

This testing of strength can bring out the worst. 

But it can also give life to many extraordinary things. 



The next time you’re struggling and thinking everything is so wrong….
just remember this is a showing of your strength and a test to see how strong you really want to be. 

Choose to take back your control and decide your own fate. 



I hope this finds you on a day when you’re needing a reminder that you are capable. That you are worthy and deserving of being in a more peaceful place. 


And please remember you are not alone on this journey. 

If you ever decide you would like a little guidance I am one message away. 



All my best, 
Jody
