Hey You! Guess What!

Martina Learning the Hoop Dance!  She is amazing too!


Yes I am talking to you.  You know who you are!  I have something to tell you that you might not have known for sure lately.  But is something that is absolutely true.  Here it is. Are you ready for it?

You are amazing!  Do you have any idea how incredible you are?  You are one of the most amazing people on the face of the earth.  In the time you have  been here you have done incredible things.  You have grown and learned and loved and walked.  You have created wonderful brand new humans!  Yes whole entire humans with hands and eyes and hearts that are as incredible as you are and often look a bit like you.

You have smelled flowers and gazed at the moon and felt the wind on your face.  You have been in love and lost at love and found love again.  You have raged and hated and made massive mistakes and you have picked yourself up and brushed yourself off!  You have acted in ways you are ashamed off but you are learning to forgive yourself and value yourself, mistakes and all! Aren't you wonderful?  And you grow.  Not the physical growth, though that is phenomenal too, but inside you've grown.  You may not always show it but you have.  And you're going to continue to learn and grow because that's why you're here on this planet.  For that reason and to be happy!

Your face and body have also changed and grown as time moves on but you are learning to realise this is a part of you, but it is not you.  You are that wonderful deep down inside commander of your body and life that never changes!  You know this is true and you love that about yourself!

You have done wonderfully kind things for your friends and you've done kind things for yourself as well.  You know being kind to yourself isn't selfish because you deserve kindness, after all, you are amazing!  You don't need to tell the world how loving and good you are because it is irrelevant.  You know it yourself and you are the most important person and the only person you care to impress with how amazing you are!

You have talents that you've explored and are still exploring.  You appreciate the talents of others as well and respect that they are different but equally as valuable as your own.  That friggin' rocks!

You are being the best human being you can be and you know that even if you haven't always been that way, for none of us are perfect and we hurt the ones we love sometimes and ourselves in the hurting of others, that you have the ability right in this moment to stop doing hurtful things.  You have stopped doing hurtful things.  For right in this moment, as you are reading this, you are hurting no one.  See how that works?

You are interested too. You have such a curiosity about you.  You look at the sky and marvel that you get to be human and have the ability to look at the sky yet you also consider that you are quite little in size in reality.  Not irrelevant of course.  You are totally relevant!

Most of all you are loved.  You are so loved.  You sometimes don't feel it.  You sometimes feel that nobody loves you but you are indeed very loved.  How can someone as incredible as you not be loved.   It's not because of who you are or what you have or your job or friends or the way you dress.  You are loved because you are just awesomesauce and potato chips! 

So walk tall!  Be strong.  Be free and do what you love to do.  Be well and know you deserve it because you are incredible and perfect right where it matters most, in your heart.

If after you read this, tomorrow or later on down the road,  someone judges you on something you have said, done or believe, remember what I said to you here.  Come back and read this again anytime you have a feeling that you are not wonderful.  Heck, copy and paste it into a document and print it out.  Put it in your wallet or purse to pull out in moments when you doubt your awesomeness.  Keep it, it is yours,,  because this is meant for you, you are amazing and I'm talking to you.  You know who you are!

True happiness is only gained by not only allowing others to be happy but by encouraging it even if their choices are not the ones you would wish.   Unconditional love means loving those you love not because your own happiness depends upon it but because theirs does.
