Not so long ago, I was feeling a little down.
As if the dreams I was so desperately after were never going to come true.
Then I happened upon my facebook inbox, and found the following message:
""It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." E.E. Cummings
The change, courage and strength that you have gone through have been inspirational...particularly for me.
For going after 'it' with a motivation greater than your fears.
For being transparent with us and making yourself easier to relate to, more than you'll ever know.
For showing, that when there's a will, there is a way.
For being the living example that the only boundaries that we have, are the ones we create ourselves. You do a magnificent job of showing us that you have set no boundaries and therefore continue to go further and further forward with your endeavors in which you enjoy to pursue.
As I "sit back" and watch you grow to become who you really are (again, from my cheap seat behind the computer screen), I am in such awe. I wonder what it's like to have such courage, strength, determination; persevering on the fronts in which you've gone after.
I do know this, though. While observing it all, it gives this meak and weak lil lady on this side of the computer the positive reinforcement and encouragement that with one decision at a time, I too, can be there."
It floored me.
How can little 'ol me be motivating,
when I can barely motivate myself sometimes?
I re-read this message a gagillionty times.
The most recent of which was last night,
as the woman who wrote it to me is currently having a bit of a rough time.
A place with which I am all too familiar.
And to her,
to anyone who needs it,
and to myself, at times
I simply offer the following:
"Just because today is a terrible day doesn't mean tomorrow won't be the best day of your life. You just gotta get there."
You are not meek.
You are not weak.
You are not small.
