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.
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.
You are not the past. You are not your pains. You are not deep-set hurts. You are not the actions of others. You are beautiful and powerful and strong and doing spectacular things. Do not let the hurts of the past control you. Remember them. Learn from them. Grow from them. They do not define you. You are so much more than a year ago, a week ago, a day ago. You’re remarkable.
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.
Friend, let’s start with calming breaths. Focus on bringing in calming air. Focus on fueling your body with peace. With each calming breath remind yourself that you are good. With each calming breath remind yourself that you are valid. With each calming breath remind yourself that you are powerful. With each calming breath remind yourself that you are loved. With each calming breath you grow even more capable than you already are. You can do this.
