Muscle Memory

I was doing a set of push-ups this week (on my knees) thinking about how, not too long ago, my upper-body was in better shape.

I can become stronger. 

I just need to break down those muscle fibers so they can rebuild themselves. 

Like so many other times when I was broken down and came out stronger on the other side.

The muscle memory that kicks in and helps my spindly arms remember how to support my body in planks and push-ups—well, I believe that the same thing kicks in to give us emotional strength. Each time we go through the breaking down, the building up becomes easier.

Somewhere inside, our bodies and spirits remember how strong we really are.
