Remember two posts ago when I wrote about feeling drained, sometimes sad and unmotivated? Isn’t it funny how we are so quick to pick up our friends’ hearts when they are broken and depressed, but have a hard time telling ourselves the same lovely truths that can get us smiling again?
Yesterday I came across a post on one of my favorite inspirational blogs that was nearly a direct reply to that previous post. I got goosebumps on my arms when I read the last lines, “Your life matters and YOU matter”. I had just said that to all of you, but had not yet told it to myself in such a blatant, Listen-To-Me-Missy-I’m-Talking-To-You kind of way.
So please, READ THIS and take it to heart, take it to YOUR heart (and brain!).

We are so much more than the sum of our parts. When you find yourself lingering on the parts of you that you’re not pleased with – regrets of the past, a mistake you made with a lesson that has yet to become clear, dissatisfaction with a job or lack of one, a longing for a family or relationship you don’t have, guilt from feeling like “imperfections” are all wrong and all your fault…
… Remember that everyone who knows you is your friend because they see a beauty in you. You give them a special joy in their life that no one else can provide. Look for the ways you do that in your own life, too. There are so many more ways than you will be able to comprehend! Trust me.
