2. Strength

Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't.

- Rikki Rogers


The whole concept of this quote, to me, is inspiring. This quote, in my opinion, applies to everybody. Reading this quote I think that everybody is strong because everybody has overcome things that they thought they couldn't. I was in my school band last year and we were playing songs that were really hard for me. I left every rehearsal almost in tears and thinking that it was going to impossible for me to understand and be able to play the song. I struggled like this for a long time. We had band rehearsals every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Since the rehearsals were right before lunch, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I would go off to lunch sniffling and trying to hold back tears. Sometimes I successfully held back my tears and sometimes I failed. I was really lucky because I had (and I still do) a great friend who comforted me and basically was a shoulder to cry on for me. Literally.  As I said a few sentences back, I struggled like this for a long time. I thought that I was never going to be able to play the song because I promised myself that I wouldn't ask for help. I was put on the high note part or part 1. My band teacher put me on part 1 because she thought I could actually play the music. I realized that in order for me to be able to play the part I had to go home and practice. I didn't want to do this at first because no one else was bringing home their music and I didn't want to feel stupid. Eventually I put aside that thought and brought home my music and practiced for a good hour and a half. After that I was okay at the song but ended up taking home the music and practicing some more. Leave a comment saying how you overcame something you never thought that you could overcome!
