listen, do you hear that? that’s the sound of life. the sound of success. the sound of everything you’ve ever wanted and thought of, unfolding before your eyes. you’re doing amazing, aren’t you? the fact that you can answer that with a yes and mean it, is so mind-blowing. just for a minute, do something for me. look around you. do you see those trees? go hug one. do you see those flowers? smell them for a moment. embrace the world for just a second, and be grateful for it. this world took you in as one of its children, has provided you with a home your entire life. next time you feel down, remember that whether you think so or not, you are so loved and appreciated. one more thing, tell everyone you know that you love them. whether you have issues with them or not, remind them that you’re there. trust me, it’s worth it. you’ve been through hell and back; it almost felt like you couldn’t get a break. from being in an abusive situation, to heartbreaks, to panic attacks, etc. you can literally get through anything; you’ve proved that. you’ve probably written your first song by now, finally was able to be with the person you love, you were probably able to do almost everything you’ve ever dreamed about at this point. go you, baby. you are a soldier, theres no questions about that. remember those days, where you doubted everything? where you overthought to the point where you genuinely believed you weren’t going to make it? well now you can say that‘s bullshit, because look, you‘re on top of the world. you are so important, you know that? i know you still think poorly of yourself sometimes, but remember who you are and why you’re here. to thrive. to experience. to live. you still have so much to look forward to, so much to enjoy. keep pushing, because every second counts. i love you more than anyone else, you’ll always be my top priority. keep being and doing the best you can, angel.
