Grow into a stronger person

Grow into a stronger person

Today, we have another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube 

When I come across roadblocks/setbacks/obstacles I know I have 3 options: 

  • Give up 
  • Give in
  • Give it everything I’ve got. 

It would be easy to give up, but if I didn’t struggle on where would all my stories come from? Because what hurts so bad today could be made better tomorrow. You never know what could happen. 

So don’t do something silly that you might regret later and/or would hurt your loved ones.

I admit in those hormonal teenage years I used to think about packing it all in, but I could never do it. And do you know why that was? It was because I couldn’t bear to see someone I cared about lonely. I still know this person and I don’t care for them in the same way as I did, but I’ll always remember how they stopped me doing something permanent based on a temporary feeling. 

So keep believing that the sun will shine someday and just because it’s not right now doesn’t mean it won’t. 

Just like a wish, just because you can’t see it right now doesn’t mean it’s not on the cusp of happening. Like hard work, just because you’re not in the place you want to be right now doesn’t mean it’s not coming. There are countless ways you could get to where you want to be through promotion or something like that. J

Just because you can’t see how far the rollercoaster that is your life has taken you, doesn’t mean you’re not going anywhere. And you only haven’t noticed because you’ve been focused on other things. 

And don’t worry if your ride has stopped for a moment, you are either destined to plummet into the stars or propel into something that will make you into a stronger person. 

Remember that is the only thing that comes of hurt, pain or wounds. You grow into a much stronger person.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried. He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation , Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band.
