Wednesday Words #8

Snuggled down, watching 'That 70's Show', it suddenly dawned on me that I hadn't thought of a phrase for this weeks Wednesday Words. I thought back to how I've been feeling this week (tired and relieved if you're asking) and thought about how hard the charity event was to pull off (we did though, it was a brilliant success!) It led me to thinking;

'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.'

Certainly apt. I think this is on of those sayings that follows you through life, I know that I've thought it on plenty of occasions. I do believe that the hard times are there to shape us as individuals. My priorities have changed massively over the last ten years. I imagined travel was the only plan for me, I didn't care about a career of having a family, just me and the world. Experiences changed me in that my aim became having a secure and safe home- something I'd never have imagined I'd care about.

That quote is attributed to German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche in 1887. Actually he said it much more eloquently; "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger."

And now we know,

  1. So much truth! These words have definitely held true for me over the past SEVERAL years - all throughout high school, college, etc. they've seemed to hold a special meaning (thank you, Kelly Clarkson). I've been through so many high highs and very low lows, and it has molded me into a better, stronger version of myself. It definitely made me feel like I was on the verge of disappearing sometimes, but all in all I feel stronger than ever and ready to take on new challenges having lived through all of the experiences I've had! Thanks for sharing :)
