Dear Getting-Back-Up Soul,
You’re going to make some mistakes. You can count on it.
You’ll fall on your beautiful face. You’ll take some wrong turns. You’ll do things that you later regret. You’ll fail at some things. You’ll mess things up. You’ll make some wrong choices. You’ll disappoint people. You’ll disappoint yourself.
You just will.
That’s because you are a human being, and it’s just part of the deal.
No matter what your mistakes have been, no matter how many times you have had to start over, no matter how many lessons it is taking for you to learn valuable things, you are just an awesome student of life. You are the one the Teacher makes the lessons for in the first place.
So sweet friend, cut yourself some slack. Do better tomorrow. Count the victories you HAVE had. Look at how far you have come. And especially, look deep into that pure and beautiful heart of yours and see that THAT is who you are.
You are not your mistakes or your wrong turns or the weaknesses that you are STILL working on overcoming. That is your human part.
You are a beautiful soul who is learning, the one who keeps trying every day.
You are so very loved.
