Every day will not be flawless. Many will have struggles. Remarkably, you continue. Some days may feel impossible. There may be a storm outside or in your head or in your heart. It will calm. It always does. Breathe slowly. Focus on tiny victories. Don’t be overwhelmed by a heart storm. You will come out stronger. I’m sorry you have to go through it to get there. I believe in you.
Deep breath. Slow, even breaths. Things may feel out of your control. Remember those tiny movements inside your body that are constantly going. Things you’ve become so good at controlling you don’t even notice anymore. Your heart beats. Your lungs fill. Your blood pulses. Your eyes blink. You’re constantly hearing and seeing and smelling. You’ve decided to ignore your nose completely, even though you see it. You are in control of each tiny movement. Deep breath. Focus in.
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.
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.
You are more than another face on the earth. You are more than another body. You are an incredible mind. You are a beating heart. You are full of ideas and feelings and hopes. You are full of the strength and power to do so much. Keep being you. We need you.
You, friend, are incredible. You constantly amaze. The things you do. The people you love. You’re incredible. Don’t let anymore tell you otherwise. You are doing incredible things. With your mind. With your body. With your heart. You are incredible.
Dear one, so much is outside of your control. Breathe deep into yourself and embrace what you have. Exhale your need for control. Worrying cannot save you. In a week you won’t remember what you were worried about. Breathe in peace, exhale worry. You are in control of your mind and heart and body.
You’ve seen it every day for almost three months. Maybe it’s lost its potency, so please pay attention. I’m glad you’re here. You are making a difference. You have a voice worthy of being heard. Don’t let people make you feel differently. You have value. Your ideas, words, emotions, thoughts, they’re real and valuable. I’m glad you’re here. There are people in your life who look forward to seeing you, hearing from you. I’m glad you’re here. Your heart and mind matter. I’m glad you’re here. You can do this.
