Today try to push yourself a little harder. It’s okay if you feel like you’re already pushing too much. It’s okay to take a break too. Honestly, you can’t do today wrong. There are no wrong decisions, just more complicated outcomes. All are learning experiences. So whatever you choose for today, mean it.
You are strong. You are. You’re stronger than you realize. You’re using strength right now that you don’t even notice. You continue to move and breathe and push and try, and that strength is carrying you beautifully. It is okay to be strong, and it is okay to hurt. Those two things can work together. You are strong.
Friend, it’s okay to push yourself. Sometimes it is necessary to overcome things, but it’s not always. Sometimes it’s important to let yourself take a step back. That’s not failure. That’s understanding what you need, and that’s beautiful and important, like you.
Hey, dear one, you’re doing great. Worn, tired, drained, empty. That’s okay. You know what? You’re still here, and that’s incredible. You continue. You work, and you move. You push, and you struggle. It’s beautiful. Keep it up. Just remember to take care of yourself.
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.
Hey, you know what? It’s okay to take a break. It’s okay to take care of yourself. It’s okay to know your limits and not to push them. It’s okay to be hurting. It’s okay to feel feelings. It’s okay to say, “no.” It’s okay to walk away from bad situations. It’s okay to let go. It’s okay to hold on. It’s okay. It’s going to be okay. You’re okay.
