Know that today, you are everything that you need to be. Where you are and who you are at this moment is no mistake. You are growing, you are changing and you are writing your own, marvelously made story. One page at a time.
Know that today, when you look in the mirror, you are enough. Embrace the wrinkles that you see for they are the markings of years that you’ve spent unmistakably on this earth. Look upon your scars not as imperfection of the skin but as a reminder of the obstacles you’ve not only faced, but more importantly, overcome. Let their presence be known for not what they are but for how strong they have made you.
Know that today, you are not defined by the number on the scale. Nor by your level of productivity or the amount of money in your bank account. You are filled with purpose and your heart is meant to overflow with love for your neighbor and for yourself.
Know that you can begin anew today and every day. Your past does not determine your future and you have a light within you that is meant to shine. So choose today. Start again, write a new chapter and make it the best one yet. Know that today (and everyday) your story is important and it doesn’t have to end here or now. There are so many more moments of love, of happiness and of life yet to be lived and you DESERVE to be apart of each and every one of them.
Carry on, warriors.
