The world is full of good and beauty and magic. Yes, it has darkness, but look around you. There is so much light, so much good, so much beauty, so much magic. If you can’t see it, start by looking at yourself, because you, my friend, are magic.
You are valid. You are good. You are loved. You are worthy. You are powerful. You are loved. You are strong. You are brave. You are loved. You are beautiful. You are kind. You are loved. You are loved. You are loved.
Friend, I’m glad you’re here. While pain and hurt are a normal part of life, remember that does not mean that you must resign yourself to them. There is good. There is light. There is love. You are here. This is good.
Friend, today may be a hard, hard day. That’s okay. It’s not easy, but it’s okay. It’s valid. Today may be a really good day. That’s okay too. Things can go well. Enjoy them. Stop covering your head waiting for the next bad thing. Embrace the good things while you have them. You, my friend, are a good thing.
Deep breath. Slow, even breaths. All that you need is already inside you. Focus on the good and powerful things that live in you. Breathe into your strength. Breathe into your grace. Everything you need is already there. You don’t need to seek it out anywhere else. Focus on what you already have and work from there. I love you.
Is there bad in the world? Of course, there is. Is there good in the world? Absolutely. I believe there is more good than bad, but bad is louder. So many tiny good, seemingly mundane things are happening all of the time that they don’t stand out anymore. Tragedy strikes and gets a voice because it is uncommon. We don’t do news reports on average events. That doesn’t mean there is good. Stop right now. Take stock. Examine the good. Start by counting yourself.
Hello, dear one. Do you know how wonderful you are? How worthy of love? How powerful? How kind? How good? I understand it’s easy to forget those things about yourself. You are though. You are worthy of love. You are powerful. You are kind. You are good.
Hi, life is hard, and I’m sorry. It can be so mean and confusing. Take a deep breath. Remind yourself of tiny things, good things, powerful things, loving things, kind things. With each new breath remember something good. Fill your body with all that is good. Let it move you. Let it motivate you.
