In a society that keeps telling us who we should be, please don’t forget who you are. Don’t forget the times when you’ve put a smile on someone’s face. Think of a joke that made someone smile, or simply a compliment on how their dreads made them look badass. Don’t forget the moments you’ve influenced people not only with your words but by your actions. Additionally, don’t forget the times you’ve loved with all of your heart, dreamed with all of your might, and lived to the best of your abilities.
I need you to remember how your movement speaks louder than any opposing argument could re-buddle against. Don’t forget the hopes and dreams you have by changing the world one small act of kindness at a time. Don’t forget how your existence alone has changed more lives than you can count and how your perseverance has guided more individuals to the places they’re meant to be in.
Remember how your spirit and soul has provided enough inspiration to those who need it the most.
Don’t forget when your beauty transcended passed your outer appearance and onto what’s inside, for all the world to see. I need you to remember everything that makes you feel so lucky to be alive, and that made you believe that this world of ours wasn’t a sinking ship after all, but a work in progress.
I know you may not be living the life you’ve imagined. You may be stuck in a job you don’t personally enjoy or finding yourself mentally or emotionally exhausted more times than you can count. But I need you to remind yourself that you absolutely do not need anyone’s approval when searching for bigger and better opportunities in your life. I know you may consider yourself as someone who is easily influenced, but I need you to believe how changing your thoughts toward a situation is as powerful as physically doing something about it.
Remember that everything presently happening in your life is carefully placed by the universe to prepare you for everything you have been asking for.
Please don’t forget all your joys along the way. Don’t forget the little things that make you happy, the smallest of events you look forward to, and the certain individuals you have yet to meet. Remember the life you have yet to live. The life you’ve envisioned since you were a little girl or a teenager, don’t let her down.
Don’t forget that you are a fighter.
How relentlessly you’ve fought to earn everything that’s good in your life right now. Don’t forget the strength you’ve developed through every obstacle you’ve overcome. Remind yourself that whatever has happened in the past, needs to stay there, as it would always be an irrelevant source of reference in your present moments. Don’t forget your levels of tenacity, perseverance, and optimism. Please don’t ever think consuming negativity will ever solve the problems you’re currently facing.
Lastly, I need you to close your eyes for one second. I need you to imagine yourself the happiest you’ve ever been. Now tell me, why are you so full of joy right now? What do you think has happened that has made you smile from ear to ear?
Whatever it is, I need you to open your eyes now because you need to see how everything begins in your mind. How your thoughts are the most powerful creators of everything you desire, whatever you think, is what you will project.
