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.
You, beautiful star, shine so brightly in so much darkness. Some days, I know, it’s hard to hold onto your light, to feel like you’re shining as brightly as you can. That’s okay. You’re doing beautifully, darling light.
Friend, the world is hard. To live and be in the world is hard. There is so much darkness. Do not give into it. It might be surrounding you. It is not what you are made of. You are not born from darkness. You are light. You are powerful, warming, bright light. Keep shining. It’s such a beautiful thing when you do.
Oh, friend, deep breath. Some days just start out hard. Some of them end terribly. Many of them, lots of them, most of them are absolutely beautiful. Right down to their tiniest details. So, come on, slow, even breaths. Fill your lungs with peace and calm and strength, and breathe out all of that worry and fear and pain. Feel your body be rebuilt by good things, and each exhale takes away all of the bad. You can do this.
Dear one, today is just another day. You can get through it. It may not be simple. It may not be hard. You can do this day. Either way. And listen, it may not go exactly the way you’d like, but at the end, you’re done. And that’s an accomplishment too. Keep working. You can do this.
Every day is not simple. I know that. Every day is not light and easy. Some days are hard and mean and heavy and complex. Often that’s how days go, but you, strong and powerful as you are, continue. You fight, and you push. You climb, and you conquer. Even the smallest victory is a victory. You are a champion today. You are a champion when it’s easy. You are a champion when it’s difficult. You, warrior, continue.
