What defines us is how well we rise after falling.
Life has its ups and downs. It is not flawless. As situations arise it is our inner strength that enables us to move forward.
Strength comes from experiences that we encounter. If we have endured pain, success, failure, happiness, grief, suffering, and joy they are all pieces that will define how we will rise. It is what makes up our inner strength.
When we fall, we can fall hard and scramble to pick up the pieces; or we can fall and get right back up. Everything depends on the strength you have to rise again. Life may throw stones at you, even boulders, but you are the only one who can overcome that which lies in your way.
