I just discovered this website a couple of weeks ago... The Brave Girls Club. They send these fabulous, comforting, inspirational little notes that just make my day. Here was today's. I'm going to emphasize the parts that spoke to me. You know... because it's my blog!
"Dear Beautiful Girl,
It is important to remember that no one has the right or the
power to take away your choices, your thoughts, or the essence
of who you are.
Lots of things in life can be taken from us, but most of the
things that are most valuable cannot. The things that matter
most cannot be seen and really CAN be protected fiercely by our
own selves so that they are not violated or crushed in any way.
No person and no situation can make us feel bad or small or
stuck unless we allow it to. It is our choice.
Be careful with your dreams. Be kind to them. Protect your
choices and your ability to make them. Make good choices so that
you are not chained by the consequences of poor ones. Watch your
thoughts and make sure that what you want most is what you are
thinking most. Stand up for what you believe in and don't settle
for anything else.
We can decide what kind of life we want to have, and we are the
ONLY ones who can decide. We can't wait around for things to
happen. We must take action to make them happen. No more
excuses, baby. Let's do this.
You are phenomenal, courageous, and wonderful."
Isn't that great?! Be sure to stop by their blog and look around. For now, Nicky and I are going to curl up and go to sleep. The sooner we do, the sooner Nick's Daddy will wake us up in the morning when he gets off duty! Nitey nite!
