I’ve always viewed someone with grit as a tough, kick butt kind of person. So I thought it’d be fun to see how the dictionary put it into words:
firmness of character; indomitable spirit
That word, indomitable, wow. That’s powerful.
Are you indomitable? I know I’m not. Well, not always. Sure. I tackled a 31-mile run last weekend, so I was feeling pretty tough. But sometimes, even the smallest frustrations or obstacles seem to knock me on my butt.
Why is that?
I have to remind myself that I am not invincible. I have feelings and I’m not perfect.
I have to take care of myself and fight hard to stay on top of my fears and insecurities.
We all do.
Otherwise we open ourselves to attack from naysayers, negative people, and life troubles that we’re bound to face off throughout our lives. They’ll always be out there, but surrounding yourself with positive people, staying physically healthy, and growing in your faith can help you develop an indomitable spirit.
Stay strong, my friends.
