It may feel like your voice isn't being heard, like you as an individual don't matter in the scope of the world. Just know this. You do matter as a person, and your voice matters. You being here does make a difference in the world.
You, as you are in this very moment, are more than enough, and that will not change. You’ll always be a special, unique person who is worthwhile and deserving of all the best in life. Remember, you deserve to be here, living life the way you choose to.
Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.
Don't let others dampen the shine of your soul. Let it glimmer strong and bright like the sun.
I've been so blessed to have some wonderful maternal figures in my life. They've taught me many lessons over the years, like how to be strong, and how to stick up for myself. Those same women have nurtured me with endless love and care, molding me into the person I am today.
