What is the power of community?

In thinking about what community really is, I have come to understand that you may not know what you have been missing unless you have discovered it and truly experienced it for yourself. Only then will you be able to imagine the endless possibilities that community can bring.

It's not every single day that you encounter something that takes you out of your comfort zone. Vulnerability is uncomfortable. Taking risks is uncomfortable. Pushing our bodies to extremes is uncomfortable. But yet, every single experience that is uncomfortable allows for growth, for inner strength and to discover something more about ourselves that we didn't know before. Strength is not what you can do but what you didn't think you could overcome. All of these encounters help with insight into ourselves and allow us to appreciate those who have helped us along the way.
