You, dear one, have worked so hard. You’ve fought and struggled, but most importantly you’ve survived. You’ve made it another day. I hope you realize how incredible that is. That really is a very hard thing, and you’ve done it. You have every right to be proud of yourself. You are so worthy of the fight it took to get here. Now, deep breath. Let’s do it again.
Hi, friend. Well done. You’ve made it to a new day. Yesterday is done and behind you. This one is fresh and clean and ready for you. You specifically. You exactly as you are. You’re beautifully suited for this one.
You did it. You’ve survived another day. You get a brand new one again to do what you want, what you can. New opportunities. Second chances. You’re free to start again. Some days that feels like too much. I know. Breathe into the new today, and let go of the fear of what that could bring. Focus on what it does bring.
You are awake. You are alive. You are here in a new day. That’s already incredible. You’ve already accomplished some pretty hard things just to get here. I promise, the next breath will take care of itself. Let your body deal with breath, while you enjoy each new moment.
Friend, you have come so far. I’m sorry for the struggle and pain and heartache you’ve had to overcome just to get to another day. There are many people in the world, there are many people in your life who will never have to understand what that feels like. Nonetheless, friend, you are here for another day. Embrace it. You can conquer this too.
Deep breath. Think of all that you’ve accomplished, even the smallest things. Today you are breathing. You made it through yesterday. Today is a whole new day for you to be proud of yourself. Look at all you’ve done and how far you’ve come. It’s okay to be proud of yourself. It really is. In fact, you should be so proud of all that you’ve done.
Your best is enough. That’s true. Your okayest is also enough. Your best on your worst day is enough. Your best that you can muster when you feel like everything is closing in is enough. Your best doesn’t have to mean the best you’ve ever offered. It’s the best you can offer in this moment. You can only do what you can do. Be gracious with yourself.
