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.
Look, in fact, do exactly that. Step in front of a mirror. Look yourself in the face. Repeat after me. “I am powerful. I am capable. I am beautiful. I am strong. I have overcome so much. I have come so far. I will continue. Today, I am in control.” I love you.
Hello, friend. I love you. It is okay to get overwhelmed. It is okay to need to rest. It is okay to understand yourself and turn things down. It is okay to know what you need. Take care of yourself. You matter.
Deep breath. Take time, allow yourself to love you. You continue to love people. You love those you’ve always loved. You love those you welcome in. You love those you do not know. Please, love yourself. Allow yourself that kindness. I love you.
