When You've Been Through a Lot and Feel Alone

You know who you are, super heroes.

Here’s to you for not sitting back, for not whining, for making it work despite the odds, for taking risks in the face of doubt, for holding true to your priorities sometimes at the detriment of yourself, for having vision and finding a way, for listening and caring when you thought you had little to give, for being gentle with yourself when it seemed nobody was.

Here's to you for failing and starting again this time with wisdom, for swapping assumptions for the truth, for not letting comparison distract you from your goals and achievements, for wearing all the hats even when they didn’t all fit, for not needing to be right but for getting it right, for not being perfect but still awesome.

Here's to you for lying awake at night worrying about things outside of your control and accepting that no matter what happens you’ve got this, for understanding that judgment only makes you judge yourself far worse, for having the courage to face hurtful feelings so you know what not to do again, for having the curiosity to allow joy to take the place of expectations. 

Applause for you. Thank you for getting up every day and being you. You deserve every happiness that is here and flooding your way. There are many people united with you who applaud you too. You may not see them but they are there. They are the same people who you may not realize are struggling too. There is a community cheering you on.

You already have everything inside of you right now to bring more of your genius to the world. And we need you, super hero. We need you.
