250 Words of Encouragement #4

It may be hard to keep your eyes open. I know anxiety hangs heavy on your eyelids. Sleep whispers into your ears and blows sweet kisses to your forehead. But don’t be fooled. It’s not real. Remember it only takes a little light to chase away the darkness. You have no light you say, but that’s not true. You can make your own light. Smile from deep within. Hope like you’ve never hoped before. Laugh for no reason. Listen to the dreams chattering your head. Step outside and don’t be afraid. Don’t look back. Release yourself. Breath. For a moment, breathe in the biggest gulp of air you can. When you’re done, you will have created light. And with that light you will move forward and set on fire anything that stands in your way. Let the flames devour every inch of pain, darkness, and brokenness. Let it consume everything. Just be careful not to be consumed yourself. Watch it all burn before your eyes and revel in all that it stands for. Because you see, you’ve only got one life to live and you’re not getting any younger. You’re dying. Day by day, you march toward death. So why are you still here? What are you waiting for? No one will come and rescue you. No one will deliver the good news you crave. No one will present a gift wrapped for you. No one. Only you can truly transform yourself. Help yourself. And you can do it. Believe.

Stay amazing,
