Whether you have been able to slice every day this month or you have just joined the challenge, you are stronger than you think you are. I was reminded of this when I read Kristin Weller’s post from her blog, Writing and Laughing. She wrote a slice on March 1 titled, I’m Stronger Than I Think I Am. In her post, she shows how determination, self-perception, and a little encouragement can be all you need to do something you never thought you could. In what seems like very uncertain times, it feels like bravery, generosity, and encouragement are good traits to live by.
