Note to Self

I got my heart broken, but loved again.
I got my heart broken, again, but still managed to put the pieces back together.
I have said and planned to never see another morning, but I’m still here and I’m still fighting.
I was told by the person who I believed was my best friend that I was no longer worth it, but I’ve found real friends who never make me feel like I’m hard to love.
I have stayed single for three years after a bad break up, but am surviving.
I said I would never move back home, but have been back for almost three years.
I was rejected by every job I applied for, causing me to be unemployed for almost two years, but I recently made a year at my current job.
I have burned bridges with those who were closest to me, but rebuilt those bridges with forgiveness and grace.
I went through long periods of time where I didn’t have a dollar to my name, but continued to work hard to support myself.
I had those who I loved and cared for leave me behind when someone “more fun” walked into their lives, but I’ve learned that true friends come when I am my true self.
I have failed over and over again with projects that I put my all into, but have continued to use my God-given talents to keep creating.
I believed I would never be enough to pursue the things I’ve dreamt about, but now I own and run a business that helps me turn my dreams into reality.
I have lost myself during the many nights I cried myself to sleep, but have learned to thank God every morning He blesses me with.

I didn’t think I could get through any of those things, but I did.
I did it before and I know damn well I can do it again.

No matter what you’ve gone through or what you’re going through right now, you can get through it.
Keep going. Keep fighting.
