I don't know who you are, or what you're going through right now. Wherever you are, though, you are not alone. If nothing else, I am sitting in this coffeeshop as I write this, hoping you have so many reasons to smile today. Either way, you're living in a moment right now. Soon, you'll be on to the next moment, and this is both a good and a bad thing.
I want to challenge you to really *live* in this moment.
If it's a good moment, love it with everything you have. Don't ignore it by worrying if the next moment will be as good. Forget that anything beyond NOW even exists, and just live in your moment.
And if it's a bad moment, remember that yes...there is a future. There will be another moment after this one. And dear stranger, I firmly believe your future will be a good one. I promise you - you haven't run out of good moments. There is light in the future and there is light in your eyes and even right now, right here - be hopeful. ♥
Burrow deep down into the present and feel it for all it's worth. Make peace with the darkness - get just comfortable enough that you can remind it that it can't stay forever. Make peace with yourself - admit to yourself that you are beautiful, in just the right ways, and let me tell you -
you are indeed beautiful.
You are capable of doing this - take a breath and another breath until you're in the future and this moment is better than the last and
sometimes progress seems small even under a microscope.
but it's worth it, and I believe in you.
