It’s Time To Take In The Beauty Of Everyday Life

Take it in. Breathe it in. Let it all in. Allow yourself to embrace the goodness that surrounds you and the hope that revolves around you. Let it hug onto the doubt that pokes at you and allow it to soften the fears that try to coax you into believing you could ever be less than. ⁣⁣

Allow yourself to linger in the softness of your daydreams and snuggle up against the potential that rests in your soul. Let yourself come up for air and take in what it means not just to be alive, but to be you. Take it who you’ve become and breathe in the life that you’ve created for yourself.⁣⁣

And on the days it feels windy with negativity and the worries cloud your mind, give yourself a moment to turn around instead of hide. Turn and look at the path you’ve carved, the journey you took, and the mountain ranges you’ve crossed—see for yourself that you are capable of anything because you have already overcome so many things. ⁣⁣

So, now, come back home to yourself, and take it in. Embrace the love that sits restlessly on your chest and welcome in the resilience that has always survived on the bottom of your foot steps. Then breathe it in. Let it all in. Greet the life at your feet that is filled with light and compassion and adventure and laughter and possibility and joy, and create more space for these things. Give them a place to sleep beside your heart and blanket them with a smile. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Take in your life for what it is and not what it could be. See the beauty in the everyday things that surround you and love you and need you and hear you. See the beauty in you too. Because life is too short to not love yourself and to not allow yourself to be completely overtaken by the life you’ve led. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

Take in your life for what it is and not what it could be. See the beauty in the everyday things that surround you and love you and need you and hear you. See the beauty in you too. Because life is too short to not love yourself and to not allow yourself to be completely overtaken by the life you’ve led.

So today, let it all in. Breathe it in. Take it all in. It’s always okay to not be okay, but it is also okay to let yourself be happy when you want to be. It’s okay to let yourself get overcome by good, because there is good to be found—it’s within you, it’s around you, and it’s coming to you, even now.
