The little kid at the bottom of the heap who shows up to every training regardless, is strong.
So is the woman who stands her ground when her coworker critiques the appropriateness of her dress sense.
As is the huge veiny man at the gym lifting 140 kilograms so far above his head that his small intestine wants to burst.
And so is the poet, trembling before the mic at their first public gig, eyes on the ground and paper in hand.
Strength isn’t restricted by gender, measured by weight or determined by contest.
Strength is the courage to show up; to commit, to fail, and to learn.
Strength is your ability to grow.
