Light among light can get lost. It’s nice. It’s warm. It’s comfortable. Life isn’t always comfortable. You aren’t a flashlight in the sunlight. You’re burning brilliantly in the darkness. You’re burning warmly in the cold of the dark. Keep shining, beautiful starlight.
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.
Friend, you’re still here, and in so many ways that’s a very incredible thing. Life can be so cruel, but it can also be so beautiful. If you can, let yourself be overwhelmed with the good and the beauty. It matters. You matter.
Friend, I’m sorry. Life has been hard. Life has been cruel. For all of its misery, you remain strong. You remain. Friend, you are so much stronger than you realize. Keep fighting. Don’t give into the darkness when you are made of so much light.
This world is hard. This life is hard. Yet, you continue. Not only that, but you are making it better. You make this world better. You make this life better, easier. You are remarkable. You are needed. You are wanted. You are loved.
Friend, life is hard. Life can be dark. Friend, you are light. There are so many like you. Do not let the darkness consume you. Do not let the darkness of others consume you. Keep shining, beautiful star.
Things change. Things grow. Things move. Things breathe. Things pulse. Life is full of disappointments, but it’s also full of beautiful moments, big and small. Keep pulsing. Keep breathing. Keep moving. Keep growing. Keep changing.
Live your life. People won’t like it. Do it anyway. Pursue the things that further your strength and power and grace and happiness. Pursue the things that make you feel alive. Push yourself. People won’t like it. Do it anyway.
