This is a letter to remind you that you’re beautiful, should you ever forget.
I hope you know that you are the most beautiful in the morning, eyes fluttering awake at the first sign of light, arms begging to hold the pillow for just five more minutes, legs aching to remind you how easy it is to put one foot in front of the other.
I hope you know that no matter how stuck you feel, your legs will always remember how to take the first step. Leaving is hard, but staying in the wrong place is harder. Let yourself walk away from anything that no longer makes you feel like you’re flying.
This is a letter to remind you that you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
Right this very second, shifting in your seat, lump in your throat, tears stinging the back of your eyes. You are here for a reason and you will discover that reason the moment you least expect it. Don’t question your decisions and don’t spend another second wading through your past.
You are here. You are alive. You are going to do so many wonderful things, and I can’t wait until the day that you see yourself through the eyes of those who love you.
This is a letter to remind you how capable you are.
You are magic. You are so much magic and stardust and moonlight howling affirmations. You can do anything you set your mind to and I hope you do every single one of those things. Don’t just follow your dreams, darling, chase them. Find them. Catch them.
This is a letter to remind you that you are going to be okay.
Maybe not today, and maybe not tomorrow, but you will. You will have days filled with okays, moments filled with not-okays, and a lifetime made up of so much more than okays. Chin up, eyes open, heart full. Remember why you are here. Remember why you started.
Remember where you are going, but don’t ever forget where you came from.
This is a letter to remind you that you are ready.
Shaky knees, trembling hands, and wobbly steps. If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re sure as hell not big enough and you’ve never been one to back down from a challenge. Risk it all, jump off the cliff, dive headfirst, Run. Run. Run.
This is a letter to remind you that home is not a place.
Home is everywhere. Home is a smile, a smell, a hug, a feeling. Home is inside of your heart and it will be in every room you choose to let it in. Home is always with you, no matter how far away it feels. Make the whole world feel like home, and you will realize you are never alone.
This is a letter to remind you that you are loved.
You have lost love, and it hurts; but you will find greater love, and it will be worth the wait. Your heart is open, and it scares you to death — let it. Welcome those feelings, invite them to sit down and stay awhile; look fear in the eyes and tell it that you are going to love anyway. Please love anyway.
This is a letter to remind you that you are enough.
No matter where you’ve been, where you’re at, or where you’re headed, you are enough as you are. Close your eyes. Listen to my words.
You Are Enough.
You are worthy of love and happiness and butterfly kisses. You must accept this in your heart and remember it every single day.
Your work is not done, but you should still stop and smile.
You should still smile.
You are enough.
