As you sit here with tears running down your cheeks, i know it’s easy to feel as if the whole world is crashing down on you. But please don’t let the storms in your life, and the waves crashing down take you under. Remember that your past has shaped you and made you stronger, but it can only do that if you let it stay there. Remember that THIS TOO SHALL PASS. the heart is a funny little thing, and i know it doesnt feel like it right now, it will heal. Maybe a little bruised and a little more battered, but still beating, still living. It will not turn to stone, it will remember how to love again. But for now we will bandage it up, piece by little piece and hold it together with tape that says: Fragile Handle with Care. And day by day that magical heart of yours will put itself back together.
You will heal.
These things take time. It hurts, know.
Those memories that used to bring you so much joy…they rip and tear at every fiber of your being. They will be happy memories one day, stories you tell of whimsy and friendship and love. But for now, lets lock them away. Tuck them away in a safe place, because they are special and you will visit them again one day. But today is not the day.
You sit here and wonder… How on earth am I in this place again? How is it possible to feel this way..AGAIN. But remember.. you got through it before, you will move forward again. You just missed a step somewhere along the way. You always did have a problem with right and left. But do not worry, the way is not long off. You will find it again soon, and as soon as your feet hit the pavement you will take off running.
But until that day, take it slow. Open your eyes, remember the beauty in the world around you, remember the things that make you smile and then cry in the most beautiful of ways.
Years ago standing in that big white dress, you danced with your father. Never in a million years would you think that the words of that song would apply to THIS. But accept that life happens, and you are strong.. please my dear.. I hope you dance.
Never stop dancing through life. Gracefully moving from one step into the next. You stumbled, you fell…but you are driven by the music in your soul. You cant deny it, you cant turn it off. It has been there since the day you were born, you were born to change the world. THIS is for a reason.
Dont let that fire that burned so bright be drowned by your tears. Don’t let the beating of your heart become insignificant because of the thoughts that are racing through your mind. You have faced so much already..whats one more to add to the list? You can do this. You can press forward. You matter and you are loved. Don’t you ever forget that.
