Every time an opportunity is lost, remember there will be another. Breathe.
Every time you are overwhelmed, remember there is the day after. Breathe.
Every time an unkind word is spoken, turn and walk away. Breathe.
Every time you yearn for lost pieces of your soul, remember forever in your heart they will stay. Breathe.
Every time you question your worth, remember who you are.
A daughter, a wife, a sister, a mother, need I say more?
That spirit blazing inside you is like an infinite beacon of light.
It can love, it can cherish and show the way, but it will never die without a fight.
Life will still inundate you with the unrelenting tsunami of where, what next, where do you stand?
Each time it does, shut your eyes and reach out, that’s me holding your hand.
