Dear Incredible Soul,
You cannot do it all.
You cannot always hold everything together and be perfectly composed every single day.
You are going to have ‘off days…days when you feel tired…times when you are overwhelmed or burdened…you will probably even have big embarrassing meltdowns once in a while.
Did you know it’s okay to be human? It is! You don’t have to hold it all together or hold all your feelings in, or imagine that you have to hold up the entire world on your shoulders or it’ll all come crashing down. It’s okay for something to be too much, or too little, or too heavy…it’s okay to be too tired, too burdened, too flat-out worn out.
It’s okay. YOU are okay. Everything is going to be okay. It is.
Let yourself have days to be a perfectly imperfect human being. Let yourself feel what you need to feel and process your life the way you need to process it. Let yourself BE.
Bad days will pass and overwhelm will become more bearable. Through all these experiences, your soul-muscles are guaranteed to grow stronger. Tears and time are often the ingredients that clear your perspective and remind you that you are strong, resilient, and capable, and of all the lovely true things that are most important to you.
Here’s the promise of a new day: the glorious sun is going to rise in the morning, and it will bring you a brand new sparkling day…filled with all the possibilities and choices and challenges and joys that come with being human.
You are just right. You are doing great.
And you are very very very loved.
