I come up with my future and set it in stone for myself, only to change it repeatedly.
But now and then, I like to remind myself – I need to remind myself – that I am durable. That I’m not unsafe inside my skin.
You are allowed to not look forward to the rest of the day, or dread the inevitable interactions you will face throughout.
Yourself, because you are the only you in the world.
I hope that this letter finds you in a better place than where I am right now. Fingers crossed, just as you’ve grown wiser and stronger, you have also become kinder. Nevertheless, if fate still hasn’t favored you after all these years and the waters are still rough, just hang in there.
I wonder what God’s plan for me is and why he feels the need to continually deprive me of the love that I am looking for.
A bad day is your mind telling you, “I need you to take a break.” We don’t realize how many things are manifesting in our subconscious.
Today was an avoidable, unnecessary, incomplete and internal battle that ended in defeat for a part of me I had to release, but I’m not quite sure that I feel free. And that’s okay.
Remember that someone smiles just knowing that you’re here. You make someone’s day better, you make them look forward to something and you make them fight through hard days. Someone’s world is better because you’re in it.
Some days, you simply only have to take care of yourself. Some days, that is your one and only mandatory job.
