Have Faith

Those who believe in themselves are capable of doing the most wonderful things. Those who doubt themselves, can fall at almost any hurdle, no matter how easy it should be to surmount. So what should you do if you once had faith and then lost it? It really doesn't matter what has since gone wrong, what you may appear to have lost or what strong reason there may seem to be for regret. All you have to do is find that faith again. You can do that, starting from today. Once you do, all else will take care of itself.

Dear Self

Dear Self, 

I know you struggle sometimes, but in case I don't tell you enough, you're beautiful. Thank you for being so strong and transparent, the world sees you even when you feel you are invisible. I appreciate your heart and your stubbornness. Your willingness to love even after being discarded and forgotten is admirable. I'm so proud to know that you've grown to acknowledge your worth.

With love, Self.

Hitting Rock Bottom

There is something about people who have hit rock bottom and have managed to crawl their way back from that dark cave. People who were once upon a time innocent like a child. People who have known and lived the deepest pit of human void. They might appear to be indifferent, elusive, but I see the fire of empathy in their eyes. These people wear no masks and they wear raw vulnerability with a sense of pride. Sit beside them, listen to their stories. Merely their presence can make you feel beautiful, merely their presence can make you feel alive.

Work Your Magic

If you can't see how to get what you want, consider how to want what you've got. Sometimes we reject options and possibilities, just because they don't exactly match some idealistic vision of how things ought to be. In holding out for our chance to live the dream, we may deprive ourselves of the chance to turn some otherwise seemingly dull part of our life into a dream come true. You can work magic. You will be all the more powerful if you remain open-minded about the kind of magic that you want to work.
