Hell yes, we’ve all experienced a hardship or two. Ok, maybe more than enough, which may have left us asking questions. Never receiving the answers we seek.
“But did you die?”
Kind of like when your parent(s) would ask “But are you bleeding?”, “But did you break a bone?”
You stood up against those hardships and you were strong, stronger than you knew or could’ve fathomed. And here you are, still standing! Through all the “mud” like the Lotus, you remained composed, beautiful and untouched.
Just as the Great Chinese Philosopher Confucius stated “I have a love for the Lotus, while growing in mud it still remains unstained”
You are BEAUTIFUL and You are STRONG
