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,
