Pssst. Hey you. Yeah you reading this. You know what? You’re special.
You’ve been through a lot which is partially what led eventually to blog and then stumble upon this post. or maybe you clicked on it from a social media site, from a friend or colleague. Maybe you stumbled upon it from Twitter. Either way; YOU ARE SPECIAL.
You are loved by someone. Be it your partner, family, friends, pets, colleagues, online friends and God.. even if you don’t believe in Him. You matter.
You are beautiful. For all the cracks and flaws and pain and things that have changed you, scarred you even. You are beautiful.
You are here. Here now in one single moment. A moment of self reflection and maybe a little doubt of my sincerity. I assure you, I mean what I say.
You need to be reminded from time to time that you have an impact on other people. Somewhere out there, someone admires you. Admires an aspect of your personality that perhaps they don’t have the courage or resources to emulate themselves.
You need to be reminded that the people who matter, are grateful for you. Your absence would create a serious void in these people’s lives and hearts.
You need to know you are appreciated. If you’ve sacrificed, it’s not gone unnoticed. Even if the people you’ve sacrificed for are too ashamed or prideful to thank you.
I would like to tell you thank you.
Thank you for your kindness/ help/ listening skills/ drives/ financial help/ making me laugh/ thinking of me/ including me/ the coffees and fancy drinks/ food/ love/ friendship/ support/ encouragement.
I just you might need this today…
Live Humbly, Be Charitable, Live Graciously,
