You did it. You’ve survived another day. You get a brand new one again to do what you want, what you can. New opportunities. Second chances. You’re free to start again. Some days that feels like too much. I know. Breathe into the new today, and let go of the fear of what that could bring. Focus on what it does bring.
Warrior, you have every reason to be proud of yourself. Maybe you got out of bed today. Maybe you went to work. Maybe you took the kids to an appointment. Maybe you braved the grocery store. Maybe you brushed your teeth. Maybe you woke up, pet the cat, and rolled over to go back to sleep. No matter what your day is today, friend, you are still here, and that is an incredible feat.
Warrior, you really have come so very far. You’ve conquered so much. You’ve accomplished a great deal. Sometimes that’s hard to see in the moment. Sometimes that’s hard to wrap your head around. That’s okay, I promise. Today, you don’t have to look at the whole picture, if you can’t handle it. So let’s just look at all of those tiny joys. That new podcast you love, the way flowers are starting to sprout from the ground, that new dish you tried to make, whatever tiny things are bringing you joy are just as valid as the amazing and huge accomplishments that you’ve made.
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.
Deep breath. Think of all that you’ve accomplished, even the smallest things. Today you are breathing. You made it through yesterday. Today is a whole new day for you to be proud of yourself. Look at all you’ve done and how far you’ve come. It’s okay to be proud of yourself. It really is. In fact, you should be so proud of all that you’ve done.
Friend, you can do this day. You made it through yesterday. You’ve made it through thousands of days. That’s remarkable. Thousands against one measly day? That’s nothing. You can do this one day. Deep breath. You’ve got this.
