This is my drawing, inspired by the one in my previous post. I thought I had to pull strength & courage out of myself when I'm in 'difficult' situations. Instead I can open up to the strength & courage that's always around me. The force of nature. I gave birth two times and there were several or a lot of times during labor I thought I couldn't go through with it, it was too painful and exhausting. But there's a strength in us that's so much bigger than that. That part of me knew I could definitely do it. And that strength & courage isn't something that comes from biting bullets. It comes from that growling animal innate deep down place. Life force at its best. That force isn't only for giving birth, but it's always there. In difficult situations, I'll be thankful for that moment. I will get out of my own way (stop thinking about solutions and why and how) and say to life force (or the universe, however you want to call it) that I need help with this and let it do its thing. It's not all about me. It's life force as a whole.
