Dear Miraculous Girl,

It’s time to cut yourself some slack.

Hug each part of your past and tell that girl you are proud of all she has endured, overcome, and created.

Tell that girl she did the best she could do and it was enough.

Tell that girl the best is yet to come because now she knows even more than she did then.

Tell her that you have forgiven the mistakes she made when she didn’t know what she knows now.

Tell her that it was all worth it.

Let that girl be amazing. Let her be at peace. Let her fly . . . because she deserves to be amazing, to be at peace, and to finally fly.

That girl is loved more than she could ever understand. YOU are that girl.

You are loved.
