That’s the kind of heart that I want. Bruises make for beautiful colors after all. “ Elizabeth Brooks

Hang in there, dear you

You know that moment when the week has just started, it’s Wednesday and your powers seem to fail? When you sleep too less but you feel that yesterday you slept even less than today?

When you wonder your powers and think if what you have done is enough and if you are doing a great job or just hanging around the world by just another thread?

When people may start to wonder how much you can take but you keep on moving and working, just giving your best in order to succeed?

Your powers may be low, your mind may be crowded with gray thoughts, your body is weak and you might feel that you are going to fail. But you are not, dear soul.

Always remember that you are strong, tenacious and powerful. You can do whatever you dream of and if you work strong enough today, tomorrow you might as well have it.

You are young, amazing and beautiful. Disregard the mistakes and the defects, they are just details in a world full of people with flaws. You are the best version of yourself and nobody can do a better job than you.

So, today at the beginning of the journey, pat yourself on the shoulder and remember that you are doing great, just hang in there, dear. Be kind and understanding with you because nobody is going to do it for you.

Work on being in love with the person in the mirror who has been through so much but is till standing. Sometimes the noise of life can be just too much. If you need to escape, love yourself enough to know when you need a real time out.
