I see you

Good Morning! I know its early but I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that you are important. You are amazing. You are more than you can even imagine. You mean the world to others.

This time of year is amazing in so many ways. But I realize for some people it is more stress than rest. You have a million things going on, events, kids activities, travel, gifts etc. I won’t keep listing because that right there might make you stop reading and get back to all of the things on your to do list.

So instead I am going to ask you to stop. Pause for a moment. Take a deep breath. Right now. Did you do it. Come on. It will only take a second. Alright deep breath. There. No matter what you have going on, if you are feeling anxious and overwhelmed the best thing to do is breathe. Slow and steady. Get yourself out of that fight or flight mode and slow down for a few minutes.

Next think up three things you are truly grateful for. It could be as simple as the coffee in your cup or as big as the place you call home. Now three people who mean the world to you. The FIRST THREE people who pop in to your head. Send them a text. Short and sweet. You are amazing. You mean the world to me. Just thinking of you. Any simple message to let them know that they matter in your life.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own stuff we fail to see the world around us. The friend who just needs to know someone out there thinks they matter. The kid going through a rough patch that needs a random act of kindness so they can see friendship isn’t a vague idea, it’s real and true even on a bad day. The mom who gives everything for her kids that just needs to know you are there in their corner if they need anything.

I see you. You matter. You are doing better than you think. Keep on keeping on. Stop, breathe and enjoy the moments. You can fold the laundry later.

Have an amazing day. I really hope you take a moment to send those texts. Imagine the ripple effect if everyone who reads this sent 3. It would make the world a little better even if it’s only for a moment.
