There will be days when your greatest achievement is getting out of bed to brush your teeth, or when you watch the sun rise not once or twice – but three times. There will be friends that you will disappoint and friends that will disappoint you. There will be a day when you experience a broken heart, and a day when you break someone’s heart – both days leaving your heart broken in two different places. There will be days when you turn left when you should have turned right. There will be days when you said no when you should have said yes. There will be days when you cry so hard your face stings, and your eyes swell. You may have already experienced some or all of these days. Regardless, these days have a purpose – because you are here for a purpose. You have a purpose.
It isn’t the good days that teach you, strengthen you, or push you – it is these days, as terrible as they may be. These days shapes you into the magnificent person that you are. It is these days that teach you gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion. You are stronger than these days – you are more beautiful than these days make you feel. You are smarter, braver, and brighter than these days. Do not let these days convince you that you are less than what you are. You are more than enough. You have a purpose and you have already made an achievement – pushing through one, or many, of these kinds of days.
Stay for the days when you laugh so hard your stomach hurts. Stay for the days when you dance in the kitchen and sing in the shower. Stay for the day when a stranger turns out to be a lifelong friend. Stay for the late-night chats, last-minute road trips, and other spontaneous adventures. Stay for the adrenaline rush when you jump outside of your comfort zone. Stay for the days where you wake up with a smile. Stay for the days you look in the mirror and love yourself for all that you are. Stay for the days when you treat yourself with the kindness that you so freely give to others. Stay for the days that make you feel like you are more than enough. Stay for the days where you feel like you have a purpose. You deserve to see these days. Stay for these better, brighter days. #bellletstalk
