Be kind, friend. Be kind to those around you, those you do not understand, who may need your patience. Be kind to those you know so well that they’ll, of course, forgive any unkindness. Be kind to yourself. You need kindness too.
Friend, there is rest. You may have to seek it out. Maybe it’ll quietly come to you, but know that it is there. Slow, even breaths. Take in little pieces of calm and rest with each breath. Be still. Rest easy.
Deep breath. Slow, calming breaths. It’s not easy to block out worry. It feels impossible. But do your best. Worrying won’t make things better. It won’t help your heart or mind. Breathe into the calm of today.
Deep breath. You can do this. You can handle this. You don’t know what’s coming today. But whatever it is, whenever you get it, good or bad, you can handle this. You will face it head on. You’re strong and powerful. You are a warrior. You have this.
Deep breath. The whole world is not in your control. So much is not. What you can do is control how you handle and approach the world, disappointment, heartache. You are in control of yourself. Deep breath. You can do this.
Hey! You’re beautiful! You are. It comes from being so incredible. It comes from all you’ve done and do, and it shows all over your face. The way your heart pours out into the world, it’s beautiful. You’re beautiful.
