Always Darkest Before Dawn.

Oh, my darling, I know you’ve had a tough time lately.

Things haven’t gone to plan and there’s been a lot of storms clouding your horizon, but don’t you dare stop believing in your power and that good things meant for you are on their way.

I know it seems like there’s always some problem or another crisis brewing, but remember, it’s always darkest before dawn.

You’ve had a hard journey and there’s been a lot of bumps and bruises along the way.

That doesn’t make you damaged goods or mean that you’re less than because of the dents and scratches that have hurt you, scars mean you’ve lived and that you’ve never given up, no matter how hard the journey.

Those bruises that you think make you less worthy are the beautiful parts of you that makes you unique.
Your friends and loved ones have always accepted and appreciated you for everything that you are, and always will.

So, when you look in the mirror and lament the things about yourself that you think are ugly, know that someone, somewhere, would give everything to have your blessings.

You’re not a survivor, you’re a warrior.

Maybe you’ve lost your way and stopped believing in yourself, but this is your time to change that.

Pick up the pen, turn the page and start a new story.

The only failure you’ll face is the one you’ll see if you stop trying, stop moving forward and giving your all.
Never forget just how beautiful you are, just the way you are.

Scratches, dents and jagged edges make you one of a kind, so stop focusing on the things that you worry make you damaged.

You’re not.

Every wrong turn, each bad choice and broken heart has made you into the person that is stronger, wiser and more beautiful.

Maybe your life won’t always be rainbows and sunshine, but I’m here to tell you that you got this.

Start believing in your power and know that you’re more than enough, you’re amazing.

Now get out there and sprinkle bits of your awesomeness wherever you go.

Turn the page, shine brighter, laugh a little more, but whatever you do, don’t stop pushing forward.

Great things are waiting for you, just around the corner.
