Hi. You’re awesome. I just wanted to tell you in case you forgot.
You’re awesome, and 2015 is going to be amazing.
You’re going to accomplish so much. You’re going to climb mountains. (Maybe literally, who knows?) You’re going to do things, some of them deliberate, some of them with absolutely no intention, that will touch lives and make people want to be better, more like you.
This year might suck a little, too. I hope it doesn’t, but know that if you’re feeling hurt, or sad, or embarrassed, or lost, or lonely, you’re not alone. Someone else out there is feeling pain. It’s okay to feel that. It’s okay to own that. Too often we’re told not to feel when we really need to. But you’re going to rise again, because you are powerful and strong. Even when you don’t believe in yourself, someone does. I do.
Let yourself shine unhindered, and without shame, this year. Don’t be afraid to be beautiful and unique. You are fierce, loving, and kind, and I am inspired to have you in my life, even in some small way.
Thank you for being you. Now let’s do this, 2015.
