Be bold, dear one. It’s hard. It takes so much strength. Know that being bold doesn’t always mean something big and public. Being bold can be stepping back. Being bold can be prioritizing yourself. Being bold doesn’t have to be a spectacle. It won’t be simple though. Still, I know you can do it.
Dear one, you are so strong. What’s hard about strength is we never feel strong when we need to use it, yet that’s so often when we show how strong we really are. I’m sorry you have to keep using your strength. I’m so glad you have it. You are so much stronger than you realize.
Dear one, you are doing so beautifully. You shine like so many stars. You move in the world with gentleness and bravery. You are strong and bold. You are more capable than you truly see. You really are doing so beautifully.
You, dear one, are the only you we have. There isn’t anyone else in the world exactly like you. No one else carries your experiences and personality. No one else carries the specific set of things you’ve learned from life. That makes you special. You matter. You are important. We need you.
There is a lot of darkness in the world, but there is also light. It can shine so brightly, and it can be faint, but warm. You, my friend, are part of that light. You glow in the darkness. You offer warmth in the cold. Keep shining, dear one.
Dear one, you have come such a long way. It’s okay to acknowledge when you need rest. It’s okay to let yourself have that rest. Long treks take an awful lot out of us. That’s normal. With some rest you can continue to make this incredible journey. It’s going to lead you somewhere magnificent. I can’t wait to see how far you go.
Dear one, deep breath. Let yourself go. Release yourself from your past. Let yourself be free from that. Only you can do this. Only you can say to yourself with love and understanding that is not who you are and move forward. That decision is yours. In your own time, let yourself go.
