You are stronger than you believe

"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. " -A.A. Milne

Christopher Robin said this to Pooh. I love this quote for two reasons:

1. It helps me whenever I'm having a difficult day. People always seem to put themselves down, instead of realizing how amazing they truly are. 

2. It helped me today when I was running (surprising? I think so.). I am definitely not in as good of shape as I was when I ran cross country and track in high school. And it's actually hard for me to  motivate myself to run faster, without an entire team pushing me along. 

But today, when I was at the rec center running, I just kept bumping up the speed. I went faster than I had ran in a long long long time. I did it though! I was a lot stronger than I seemed. 

So basically what I'm trying to say is, be your best. Push yourself to be that absolute best. And don't let yourself or anyone else say you can't do anything.
