These recent weeks have been very tough on many ends. Trying so hard to manage multitasking with work and school and a host of other personal interests, businesses and pursuits, plus trying to fix some things that had gone wrong. For a while, I even paused writing and making these posts. Many times I thought I was going to crack up. It never happened. But I look over it all and wonder how I’ve managed to get through all of that.

The things I thought would tear me down or drive me to my limits hit, but only made me realise I have no limits or haven’t gotten close to reaching them yet. Obviously, I can scream at life and say, “Bring it on; I was not built to break!” In fact, I can describe what it was like in the words of Whitney Houston:

And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength


And here I say:

Through the storms and the rain, 
Through all of the pain, 
Through the thick and the thin,
I realised one thing: 
I WAS NOT BUILT TO BREAK; I AM MADE OF MORE!
