be soft

1b822fc95f1becf1d2fcfb9f786a336eBreathe in. Breathe out. Repeat.

Sometimes, right when we think we have it all together, it all falls apart.

Sometimes, as soon as we stop fearing the future, it hurts us.

Sometimes, the moment we put our trust in someone, they let us down.

Sometimes life is just really f*cking hard.

Pause. Feel the pain. Breathe. Cry yourself to sleep. Twice. Allow yourself to be frustrated, confused and hurt…because your feelings are not the enemy. But then, once you’ve felt it all, switch gears and use it. Use each and every feeling to push you, strengthen you and inspire you. Stand up, smile, put one foot in front of the other and keep moving. Pause but never stop.

Never, ever let pain steal your light. Shine through it and then shine brighter.

Here’s to growing stronger…

      Isn’t it nice to know that we’re not alone? I’m so happy to hear that you’re getting stronger though– I like to believe that we’re faced with these challenges so we can become the strongest versions of ourselves. 🙂
