Go do something fun

Dear Perfectly Imperfect Girl,

It’s hard to remember that we can’t be much good to anyone at all if we don’t take care of ourselves. Even though there may be people all around us who need help, who need assistance, who need advice, who need a hug, who need a friend, who need a clean towel, who need a sandwich…..we’ve all got to have the energy to do these things each day, and we can not expect our bodies to carry us forward without recharging. We kind not expect our mind to have fresh ideas and our hearts to have patience. We have to refill ourselves.

Just like we are told on an airplane before a flight…before reaching out to help another, we must have our own oxygen masks on. It is not taking anything away from anyone else when we take some time each day to catch our breath, recharge, restore and remember.

We must.

dosomeethingfun-440Take time to take care….you are so important. And you are loved.

xoxo

Enjoy your flight and travel light

Dear Traveling Girl,

Life is a trip with a perfect itinerary that we cannot see. Imagine it this way — that there really IS an itinerary, but you just can’t see it. There is an amazing destination, but you just don’t know where the stops along the way will happen where you will have to refuel, where your best memories and your greatest lessons will happen.

We don’t know that what may seem like useless detours are where we might meet the most amazing people of our lives, or enjoy the best scenery, or learn the most important things.

 

Brave Girls Club - Keep going...you are getting there!

Sometimes we fail to enjoy the trip because we are so hung up on wanting to see the itinerary. You will have the best times of your life when you just TRUST that you are exactly where you are supposed to be, doing exactly what you are meant to be doing, and that tomorrow you will be lead to the next destination.

You always have been, you always will be.

Remember to travel light, only take what you need with you. It will make things so much easier.

ENJOY YOUR FLIGHT, little birdie!

You are so very loved.

xoxo

Your heart will mend…

Dear Authentic Girl,

Your heart will mend, it will…it always always will, no matter how many times it has been broken. Sometimes our hearts have to be broken to be made into something newer, stronger ,and wiser. Sometimes the cracks that a broken heart makes and leaves are the very portals to the greatest
light and love and learning that we will ever experience.

Having our hearts broken is a part of life…it just is. Anyone who lives and loves with all of their heart, or even with parts of their heart, is destined to experience the breaking of that heart at one time or another.

Be with those feelings. Don’t rush the healing time. Let it go at its own pace and certainly don’t shove those feelings into some faux hiding place, believing that what is out of sight is out of mind.

Broken hearts have a lot to say….and the more patient you are to listen…the faster your heart will heal. Listen to what your broken heart is saying about how it wants life to be, in the future….

Be patient and gentle with yourself….no rushing. Rushing a broken heart is a bit unkind and impatient…you don’t want to treat yourself that way!

You are so loved. You are so wise and wonderful and amazing.

You are healing right now.

xoxo

Your path is YOUR path…the very path you were created to travel

Dear Strong Enough Girl,

There are seasons in life that come and go. Sometimes it feels like things will never change, or that we will never get through a certain time in our life — but we always do, don’t we? We always got through everything we ever got through — there was always enough, somehow things always fell together, and everything we needed always showed up from somewhere — sometimes just at the nick of time.

Some seasons of life are easy and breezy, some are very difficult. Some of our seasons are filled with people and support, sometimes we have to travel alone. Some of our seasons make perfect sense, even if they are difficult. Some of them make absolutely no sense at all while they are happening. Some of our seasons are downright boring. Some of our seasons completely rock our world. Some of our seasons change everything and nothing is the same after them.

Brave Girls Club - Your Path

ALL OF OUR SEASONS MAKE US WHO WE ARE.

And we continue to have what we need during each one of them, each season of our lives continue to bring enough of whatever it is we need to get through. Things continue to fall together exactly when they are supposed to.

So no reason to worry. It will keep happening. Even if it’s a season of uncertainty, just remember that everything always shows up when its supposed to show up, always lasts as long as its supposed to last, and always teaches us exactly what we are supposed to learn.

Life is incredible like that.

Please don’t forget that there is a plan for your life, and all of the seasons will make sense someday. Find the beauty in every single one of them, and especially learn the lessons. Pretty soon the seasons will change!

You are loved beyond measure.
xoxo

What do you need to mend in your life?

Dear Courageous Girl,

We all have a proverbial basket of things that are in need of mending, all of us do! We have relationships, sweaters, cabinet doors, hearts, dreams, windows………..thing after thing in need of some attention and time.

Sometimes we get paralyzed by the amount of things in that basket, so we just start walking past it, pretending that it’s not there…but still feeling something deeply gnawing at us, and preventing us from feeling total peace.

Don’t be afraid to look in your basket, beautiful friend…..just start picking up one piece of mending and work on it a little….then another tomorrow. This can be real, physical things like sewing a button back on your favorite coat, to much bigger things…like sending a nice card to someone you’ve had a falling-out with but would love to patch things up with.

Don’t let your basket of mending steal any more of your joy or peace. Take an honest look at it today and then take a deep breath and make a plan to start mending things…..a little at time, and then let it go and be o.k. with it all.

You are deeply loved.

What are you willing to let go of?

Dear Beautiful Girl,

What are you willing to let go of today? Life is so much about knowing what to hold on to, and what to let go of — and having faith that it will all work out in the end.

Your heart and your gut know exactly what you need to let go of, even if your brain is giving you all sorts of reasons to clamp your fingers around it. There are seasons and times to have different things,relationships and situations in your life, and then the seasons change and it’s time to let go of many of those things. Change is hard, but change is absolutely necessary.

We’ve all got to let go of old habits, old situations, old behaviors and sometimes even old relationships to make room for what is meant for the next part of our lives. If we just get quiet, get brave, and listen very closely, our hearts will tell us what to let go of. This doesn’t mean it will be easy. It just means that it is what is meant for now.

You can do this.
Listen to your heart.
Be brave.
xoxo

What to do when your day doesn’t go like you hoped…

Dear Fantastic Girl,

Despite the best planning, the most diligent working, and the very best intentions, some days just don’t go at all like we hope for them to go. Sometimes weeks go like this, sometimes months. We do all that we feel we are supposed to do yet things go a different way than we had planned, than we had hoped, than we had expected.

What are we to do? Well, we just keep going. We just keep doing what we know in our hearts we know we are supposed to be doing, even when hurdles come up, even when we get tired. We just keep going, keep following our hearts.

And we laugh, we sing, we enjoy life. We make things fun, we spend time with friends and family and we reach out and help others, no matter what. We keep believing that things are working out exactly as they should even if they are not what we had expected. We keep growing, we keep learning, we keep getting stronger. We keep becoming. That’s what we do.

So just keep becoming. It is happening. You are loved.

Your Heart Knows When it’s Time to Simplify

Dear Extraordinary Girl,

You can do amazing things with the simplest things. You can have so little and be so happy. You can take small amounts of time and perform life-changing acts.

Is it time to simplify? Is it time to pare your life down to the handful of things that mean the most to you, and let the rest go so that . . . you can give the very best of yourself to the very best things . . . instead of being spread in a too-thin layer all over the place?

Your heart knows when it’s time, and you will have the strength to do it. And best of all you will see enormous changes happen in your life when you let the unimportant things go and embrace the things that quietly sustain you and bring you joy.

It may not look like the most glamorous life, but it is one filled with joy, peace and harmony . . . one where laughter is a welcome and frequent companion . . . one where worries are few and where long meaningful conversations are many . . . one that is waiting for you when you are ready to take the steps to get there.

Simplify today, one little thing at time. You can do it. You are loved.
xoxo

Just keep showing up….

Sometimes we don’t know what to do….or we are too tired to know the very best things to do. Sometimes we hide out, stay back and wait because we don’t feel like we are quite right yet, or the circumstances are quite right yet….or maybe just because we are afraid. THESE ARE THE VERY MOST IMPORTANT TIMES to keep showing up. To show up to your life……and to keep showing up.

just-keep-showing-up

This is when the magic happens….when we just show up.

Let Life Surprise You and Trust the Journey

Dear Impatient Girl,

Sometimes we need to just let life surprise us a little instead of trying so hard to control every single outcome for every single thing…isn’t it exhausting?

Gorgeous soul….look back on all of the other times you’ve tried with all of your might to hold things together, put things together and keep things together so that everything would be perfectly in place for the exact things to happen that you were so determined to make happen. Remember how things happened completely differently than you ever could have dreamed….but that they worked out exactly the way they were supposed to? (even if it was painful or uncomfortable?)

Life has a way of surprising us whether we are ready for it or not…whether we worry our little heads off or whether we plan our fingers right down to the bone….life still surprises us.

So….let the worries go for a bit. Let yourself chill and be still. TRUST THE JOURNEY and trust yourself. No matter what happens, you will make it and you will make it into something beautiful and wonderful….just like you always have.

Surprises are fun.

You are so very loved.
xoxo
