I hope you never take for granted the love you have around you.
I hope you never stop seeing the beauty in the small, everyday things.
I hope you give life all you’ve got in order to live your best one.
I hope you choose love, over and over again, even after you’ve had your heart broken.
I hope you laugh as often as you can.
I hope you learn, the easy way, that the little things aren’t so little.
I hope you forgive easily but learn from every difficulty.
I hope you learn that holding on to anger only poisons you.
I hope you love your people with everything you have and never hold back.
I hope you learn to be vulnerable and say what’s on your heart.
I hope you find your voice and speak your truth from a place of love and kindness.
I hope you learn there’s very little in this life to fear except not living it.
I hope you take every opportunity presented to you to try something new.
I hope you learn to give yourself and those around you grace. We are all doing the best we can.
I hope you learn to let go of the people and things that aren’t good for you. Not everyone who demands your love and attention should get it.
Learn that saying no isn’t selfish but it is necessary.
I hope you learn that boundaries are healthy and people who don’t respect them aren’t your people.
I hope you find a way to REALLY love yourself.
I hope you find a way to choose yourself and put yourself first. Your relationship with yourself is your longest commitment.
I hope you dance and laugh and sing and breathe fresh air and smell the flowers and take that trip and love that person and hug and cry and do all the things that feel good to you. I hope you slow down enough sometimes to notice the sun shining on your face, the birds singing, the silence. I hope you stop being afraid of life and learn to live it, depth and breadth.
I hope you learn to let go of trying to control everything because, really, you don’t have much control anyway. You only control the way you respond to the things life hands you. That’s it. Focus on that and life will become much easier and happier.
I have learned more about life and love in the last 11 months than maybe my entire life before. These are some of the things I’ve learned. It changes everything. I hope you learn them in an easier way than I did…
But I hope, with all my heart, you learn them. ♥️♥️♥️
