Dear Beloved Soul,

You are you because of the sum of every minute you have been alive.

You are you because of everything you have learned, no matter what it took to give you the lesson.

Because of all of these things, there is not another soul like you that ever existed and there never will be.

Because of this, you have the ability to leave a beautiful mark on this world, and on every person you ever meet and every place you will ever go . . . a mark that can NEVER EVER be made by anyone else.

If you had not done what you have done, endured what you have endured, decided what you have decided . . . you would not know what you know.

If you had not fallen where you fell and got back up where you got back up . . . you would not be where you are today.

Own it, friend. The beauty is in the real stuff. Be real, flaws and all.

You are so very, very loved.
