i believe people run marathons every day of their lives in one way or another, and we need to remember to give ourselves the finishers’ medals we deserve.
~zoe koplowitz, author and marathon competitor
and you just never know what someone else is going through. you just never know what another must persevere in his or her own life. and these others never know what is going on in your life.
so, it is up to us to give ourselves the grace we deserve…or the grace we would give another if we knew their story.
it is up to us to acknowledge our own victories…learning from them and gaining strength in the process.
it is up to award our own medals…celebrating who we are.
