Dear Courageous Girl,

One of the paradoxes of life is that sometimes the very best decisions have the most difficult consequences. And sometimes what is best is not what we want most. And sometimes when we want to feel peace, we have to do something that feels painful first. Sometimes we have to do such hard things, and there’s absolutely no other way.

You can do it, though. You know what is the right thing to do…you know for sure in your gut, and deep in your heart, and a million signs have led you to what you are supposed to do. It still feels so scary, so difficult, and so impossible, even for a very brave girl.
Just know that most of the best things in life come after making the most difficult choices, and doing the hardest things, and taking the biggest risks.

You really can do this….and miracles are going to happen when you do.

You are loved.
