It’s been hard hasn’t it?
This year has brought an unprecedented range of disasters, loss and injustice that a lot of us have never had to live through and it’s been hard.
This entire year has been nothing short of overwhelming so take a step back if you need to.
Remember that you can only give as much as you have so take time out for yourself first.
Breathe. Take a break. You deserve it.
And never hold back your tears.
It takes incredible strength to let go so cry as much as you need to for as long as you need to.
You’ll be okay.
That’s one of my favourite things to say, because if you can take one more breath then you can take another. If you can go one more minute you can go an hour. If you can go one more day you can go a week and then a month and then you’ll see that you’ll be okay.
You’ll see that this too shall pass
You’ll see that you’re stronger than you give yourself credit for and even where your strength fails, you have a father whose never ending strength you can draw from and you are completely held in his hands. There is no area of your life that is he doesn’t care about.
Know that you are you completely and recklessly loved by God.
So chin up my love. Chest am. You go dey alright.
With love, Light 💛
