These words are about gaining physical muscle, but I also think they apply to healing. That moment when you feel like quitting is actually the moment when you need to keep going. By doing that you tell your brain and your body that no matter what you are not giving up. That message alone will have amazing healing powers and influence on your future self.
Today's words are from Heather Jo Clark, UFC fighter.
Healing Words is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
