Dear one,

You are worthy of love and belonging–just by being you.  Nothing can change this.  Your worthiness and lovability are not dependent on others’ perception of you.  You are okay just as you are.  You do not have to be perfect.  It’s okay to feel like a mess sometimes.  There is nothing wrong with you.  You are not broken.  And you are not alone.  It’s okay to have days where you aren’t productive, efficient, or effective.  You are more than your successes and failures.  Your worth is not dependent on what you produce or accomplish.

It’s okay to be right where you’re at.  It’s okay to pause.  It’s okay to rest.  You do not have to work so hard. You can let go.  It’s okay to change your mind.  It’s okay to take care of yourself.  It’s okay to say no.  It’s okay to be vulnerable and truthful. You are not responsible for everyone else’s feelings. It’s okay if someone is disappointed or upset with you.  It’s okay to allow others to be uncomfortable.  It’s okay to be uncomfortable yourself.  You can handle more than you know.  It’s okay to be angry, confused, sad, scared,  or overwhelmed–lean in.  You are resilient.  It’s okay to ask for support.

Be gentle with yourself and with others. Treat others as you would have them treat you.  Be intentional with your thoughts and words–they are powerful.  Choose loving thoughts over judgmental ones.  Forgive yourself when you don’t.  It’s okay to disagree.  It’s okay to mess up.  It’s okay to be vulnerable and to speak your truth.  It’s okay to have feelings.  Your feelings are important and valid.  Your experience and input matters.  Speak up–people need to hear what you have to say.   You do not have to be an expert to offer value.

Your presence is appreciated.  You are greater than others’ perception of you and greater than your perception of yourself.  You are loved and supported.  You belong.  You are beautiful.  You are strong.  You are connected even when you feel alone.  You are exactly where you’re supposed to be.  Let yourself be there. Trust that there is a divine organicity at work.  Invite your curiosity.  You have everything you need.  This is just a reminder–you already know all of this.

Much love, Your Inner Wisdom <3
