Today's post is in honor of some of my dear friends who have battled some nasty monsters in some scary battles. One friend in particular is in the middle of a battle right now. I cannot tell you how MUCH I admire these dear people. These weary warriors, who bravely get up day after day to face a new day.
You know what, though? We all have our own battles, our own private wars we wage. Some of our battles are out in the open, with lots of spectators. Others of us like to battle in private, silently, and putting a bland smile on our faces instead.
Whether you find yourself in a battle today or not, I hope you'll take a few minutes to watch this video. Glennon Doyle writes the refreshingly honest and hilariously funny blog Momastery. She also has written a book that sits on my nightstand that I've underlined something on nearly every single page--Carry On, Warrior: Thoughts on Life Unarmed.
Please join me in encouraging all the warriors around us. We're all in this world together--let's all show up and be honest, together.
What battles are you facing today? What encourages you most when you're in the middle of a nasty battle?
