“’Growing Stronger’ emerged from a need to relate my life experiences as well as my constant struggle to prevail each day, and as a reminder to myself of the importance of never giving up.”–Thalia

Giving up the dream, saying “it just wasn’t meant to be”, or letting circumstances and supposed self-limitations stop us is the easy route.

It’s what we do with the apparent challenges, abundant self-talk, and arising adversity that either profits or depletes us.

Farmers call produce which creates profit (e.g., corn) “grist” and bring it to the mill.

What if every single life experience we have can be seen as perfect and necessary to get us where we want to go?

Got grist for the mill?

“You can’t go into new life experiences without the understanding that yeah, you may fail, but knowing you might fail can’t stop you from trying.” –Alice Dreger
