Sometimes Rocks Crack

I think we all know people who are ROCKS.  (not dumb as a rock!!!) 

Screen Shot 2014-05-04 at 11.43.50 AMThese rocks are the people who others lean on during the rough times or even just during the normal daily events of life.

I have been very fortunate in my life and have never lived through a major tragedy.  That fact combined with my need to be completely independent make it hard for me to let someone else be a rock for me.

However, I do try to be a rock for those around me.

But, sometimes, rocks crack.

Screen Shot 2014-05-04 at 11.36.35 AMThere are so many forces that combine to cause this and as hard as we try to be strong we can’t always keep the cracks from forming.  

Over time the cracks will grow and eventually the rock will wear down.

I am on a mission to try and rebuild/reinforce my rock.  I’m not sure what all that will involve or how long it will take but it is something that needs to happen so that I don’t end up like this – Screen Shot 2014-05-04 at 11.59.42 AM

Do you have a “ROCK” in your life?  
Are you the “ROCK” for everyone around you?  How do you keep from cracking?

Happy Monday!
