A Loving Reminder That You Can Always Start Again

some of us are 19

and are already terrified of not succeeding

while some of us are 33 but still feel

like a teenage soul who seeks to inspire, have fun

and live carelessly.

some of us are four without ever knowing

what love, warmth, or belonging is while

some of us are 65 with a head full of wrinkled regrets

never genuinely having the courage

to chase one’s bliss.

but despite all this

a special truth remains:

“this is the youngest self

you’ll ever be.”

this is the life you were given

and no matter where you are in your journey

you are never too young or too old to believe that

everything is lost.

you have the gift to start again.

you have the gift

to make mistakes because success demands

the courage to make a fool out of yourself

and still have fun in learning better in the process.

you have the gift to be happy in where you are

as long as you always remember

to keep on growing.

you have the gift of light

that attracts you to good-intentioned people

if you let them in with their love.

you have the gift to keep on persisting.

you have the gift to keep on believing.

you have the gift of a peaceful mind

that knows what is beneficial for your soul

whenever you are caught in a hurricane of doubts.

you have the gift to allow the spirit of confidence

to reign in the essence of your tender being.

you have the gift to show the world

that there is hope even in the darkest parts of yourself

that are lost, broken and sad, but that doesn’t make you

any less than a blessing.

you have the gift to heal.

you have the gift to recover.

you have the gift to change your perspective.

you have the gift of feeling possible again

with everything that excites your whole existence.

you have the gift to make your life a wonderful story.
