Never underestimate the capacity for the human spirit. As Cindy details below, to be human is many things. Some worth keeping, and some worth fixing.

To be human is to understand that you are beautifully flawed with good intentions.
Our intentions lead us to many challenging places within our life. As humans we all too often rely on manufactured feelings to lead the way. Being imperfect is human. And that is beautiful.
To be human is to feel.
Raw emotions are inside of all of us. When we hide the tears, the laughter, the love, we are denying who we truly are. Humans feel not just with our bodies but with our souls. If it hurts cry, if it is funny laugh, and if you desire to be loved…love first.
To be human is to fail.
We are surrounded by how we have failed. Failure is the humans’ purest call to greatness. In our mistakes we find ourselves. We flourish after our failures, not before, never before. Without failure there is no humility, without true humility, there is no humanity.
To be human is to thrive.
“To progress toward or realize a goal despite or because of circumstances.” This is how we as humans define thrive. If a wall is put in front of you climb it, walk around it, or burst straight through it. As humans we learned fire was hot and that rain puts out the fire. Find a way to keep your fire hot, even when it rains.
To be human is to lie.
Sadly the person we lie to most is the one in the mirror. We lie to ourselves to provide comfort; making a mask of what and who we are. Only to be unmasked by reality.
To be human is to act like a child of entitlement.
When something is difficult it is human nature to feel that you deserve what feels good. When you are hiding behind entitlement instead of growing up, you will get childish results. One of the best parts of being a human is finding your inner kid, not acting like one.
To be human is to believe.
Never stop dreaming about what fuels your soul. The moment you think you can’t get the weight over your head and stick it…you’re right, you won’t. The moment you believe you can…you will. When you believe you can be the human you strive to be, you will be…so start now.
