But there are some people with a warrior’s spirit that face challenges head on and win.

To have a warrior’s spirit does not mean you are not hurt by betrayal or that you never feel sorry for yourself. It just means that you don’t allow negative experiences to change the fabric of your being.

You believe you can get past anything and exude strength.

Someone with a warrior spirit understands the bigger picture. He or she is aware that this is just a moment in time along their spiritual journey.
