A love note to you (and myself)

No matter what you are going through, you will get through this.

You may feel hopeless but I think you radiate hope and strength because you haven’t given up or checked out.

You continue to fight.

You are always experiencing and experimenting and desiring to treat your body with respect and honor, despite the times you think you mess up. Because each time you fall is a lesson and you become more dynamic and wise. Your stories are interesting, captivating, and filled with depth. 

Life is a journey, and keep remembering to trust your life. Despite how much we think they are against us at times, our bodies want to heal and want to be healthy. They are truly doing the best they can just like we are. 

Look at where you are now, even though the days are tough, you wouldn’t be there without your challenges. So what good can you find in them? How can you love yourself through it? I believe in turning your mess into your message and that things happen for us not to us.

I wouldn’t be here writing right now if I didn’t have chronic pain. I was shook by the universe to wake up and follow a different path of sharing my story, and helping others with their own health and healing and for that I am so thankful. I wouldn’t feel the passion I feel now for what I want to do with my life.

Look for lessons from the universe. Become intuitive. Listen. Find meaning. Search for answers. Don’t give up.

You don’t have to be perfect, show up, and say yes everyday. Sometimes, take a day to…chill out on the couch while watching a TV marathon and snacking on whatever the heck you feel like, cry to your mom, best friend, or your significant other and don’t apologize for it, don’t shower all day and stay in your sweats, say no to plans, order take out, ask for time to yourself, lay on the floor for no reason, don't make the bed. 

Just because people don’t understand you or support you doesn't mean you are bad or wrong.

We are all unique. We are all special. We all have different needs and wants. You are whole. Nothing is wrong with you.

You will find that special someone that supports you and loves you unconditionally, and if you haven’t then keep looking. Because you are deserving of love. Don’t pretend to be someone else, or act a certain way because you think you are supposed to. Be free by being you. 

XO-
