A minute reflection.
Look in the mirror and be proud of the person you've become, recognise your strengths and the hurdles you've got through to get here today. Nobody's journey is smooth sailing all of the time. We ride the waves and when it gets pretty rough we keep our head above water and we learn how to survive. We learn that survival is necessary and the only person we really need to prove something to is ourselves. Our turmoil’s indicate that first and foremost we have to be there for ourselves, loving ourselves through thick and thin. What we tell ourselves mentally, matters.
Be proud that you made it this far, because life is tough and uncertain and through it all you never gave up on you. Look at your reflection in the mirror and say "I'm proud of you. I'm proud of your attempts to be happy despite what that may look like to others. I'm not perfect. None of us are. Keep rising." Sometimes we just need to engage in some positive self-talk, encourage ourselves and acknowledge how far we've come.
Be proud of you.
