Hey there, Gorgeous!
Yes, I’m writing to you. Welcome back, I’m glad you finally woke up from that dreadfully dreary place that we call “When Life Gets You Down.” It’s good to have you back, we’re all really glad that you’re here.
Guess what? You are beautiful. Your eyes, magnificent. You have good, strong legs, capable hands, warm smiles and kind words. Yes, that’s you—all of you out there. Do you know what else you have? You have your will, your strength and your dreams and your ambitions. I know, these are things which are hard to find, hard to remember sometimes. But you still have them, they’re still a part of you.
You are worthy of life, you’re entitled to it just by being here. Don’t let anyone permanently get you down. I say permanently because there will be days when things are hard, when people or things get you down and sad and miserable. Do not let these things pull you down forever, because only you know who you are, only you know that what those others see isn’t the entire picture. Only you know who you truly are and why and who you want to be and how you’re going to do that. You keep going forward, even after you get lost or have to backtrack.
Remember that you are a beautiful creature. Look at your eyes in the mirror—they’re not just one color, are they? Appreciate each of those colors, because no one else on this planet has that exact combination as you. Remember that your hands, your legs, your words, are going to get you things, take you places, and help you say what you want.
Remember that you have the power to think what you want. You have the power to say what you want. You have the right to feel what you feel.
Because you are a gorgeous human being, and because you are alive. Today. Now.
Welcome back, sunshine. I’m excited to see how you’re going to grow.
