The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.” ~Jesse Owens

Jesse Owens was an African American track and field athlete who competed in the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin, while Nazi propaganda promoted concepts of Aryan racial superiority and depicted ethnic Africans as inferior. Owens countered this by winning four gold medals.

What battles have you been fighting this year? What barriers have you overcome?

What did it take for you to come through? Give yourself a moment to acknowledge the attributes, qualities, resources and spirit you have inside you.
