★·.·´¯The Lighthouse¯`·.·★

Be a light in the dark. Shine brightly for those who have lost their way in the storm. Use your story to help another person continue their own. You are loved. You are significant. You belong here. Be blessed!

You are far more capable than you believe yourself to be. I hope you’ll give yourself the chance to shine brightly in your skin. You can do it! Whatever “it” is you are capable of accomplishing it. You as you are right now can become anything and everything if you’ll choose to believe and fight for it. If you need help, then ask for it.

Don’t give up on your dreams because you lack faith in your talent. You can learn what you need to learn. You can overcome every setback or failure in the process of becoming who you want to be. You are more than capable of making your own beautiful dreams come true.

With love,

Dele

So fail. Be bad at things. Be embarrassed. Be afraid. Be vulnerable. Go out on a limb or two or twelve. You will fall, and it will hurt. But the farther you fall, the higher you will rise. The higher you rise, the clearer your future becomes. Failure is a gift, welcome it. There are people who spend their whole lives wondering how they became the people they became, how certain chances pass them by, why they didn’t take the roads less traveled. Those people aren’t you. You have front row seats to your own transformation and in transforming yourself, you might transform the world. It will be electric, and I promise it will be terrifying. Embrace that; embrace the new person you’re becoming. This is your moment. I promise you, it is now, not two minutes from now, not tomorrow, but really now. Own that, know that deep in your bones, go to sleep every night knowing that, wake up every morning remembering that, and keep going.

You have no idea how beautiful you. No clue how much your presence makes the world a brighter place. I wish you could see yourself for the treasure you are. Slow down love. Take a moment to breathe. Be gentle with yourself. And remember to do the following…

Laugh.

You get so busy. So caught up in the things of this world. When is the last time you laughed till you cried? Till your soul rumbled with the ache of joy and happiness resonating in the sound of your laughter. It’s good for you to laugh. To spend time with people who bring out that side of you. To let go of the weight you are carrying and just laugh. Smile. For a moment finding sweet medicine for your heart. I pray life gives you reasons to laugh even in the storms. Even in the ordinary. Even when it feels like you’ve forgotten how to.

Have fun.

You are doing too much, too often, with too little fun. Yes, there is a time to play and a time to work. But I believe you can have fun during it all. It’s all about the way you look at things my love. You’ve forgotten how colorful life can be. You forgot that you can have fun. You can make even the boring day to day things into glorious adventures. You don’t have to be so serious. You don’t have to try so hard to be grown up. Be yourself, and have as much fun as you can in the mundane as you do it the extraordinary moments of life. Put on your favorite tunes. Work with people you love. Find something good in each day. Open your eyes love to the wonder of your life, and have fun. I hope to see you smiling again.

Choose joy.

Oh this is my deepest wish for you my friend. Life is HARD. It is crazy how many things can go wrong in a day. I know there are days when you wake up and you just don’t want to leave your bed. You don’t want to let the world give you another scar. I know that joy is not easy to have let alone choose but I ask this of you because joy makes all the difference in this life. Choosing joy is the greatest gift you could give to yourself and the people who come across you. What do I mean by choose joy? Believe that there are beautiful things waiting for you. Believe that good things will come. Believe that you are loved. Believe that the light inside of you is greater than any darkness you will come across. Take this faith into each encounter, each day and come alive. Live this life you’ve been given with joy in your heart. Joy is believing in spite of what you see, hear, feel, or go through that life is truly beautiful. And because it is beautiful you can keep going with a smile on your face, with hope in your soul, and love in your heart. I know it is hard, and I know you get tired but choose joy. Choose to have that attitude of faith in the possibilities each day can bring.

I pray, I hope, I wish that you will know how precious you are. And that no matter what came before this moment you can choose differently. You can laugh again. You can have fun. You can choose joy.

You are loved,

Dele

It is my prayer, my hope, my wish, and my dream for you to know your worth. To know that no one and nothing gives, limits, determines, and destroys your worth. Your past is over. Your mistakes are over. You are not the same person. You do not have to carry the weight of all the yesterdays. You do not have to carry guilt or shame or pain for even one second longer. You can choose different. You are worthy of something better.

With love,

Dele

All that hurt. All that sorrow. All that brokenness. Will you let it go? Will you let the tears flow and the healing begin? For every person that told you, you were nothing, I tell you that you are everything. For every situation that made you feel small, worthless, dirty, ashamed, I tell you with my whole heart that you are powerful, beautiful, redeemed, restored, and set free. It is over. And you don’t ever have to spend another moment bowing your head.

Lift your head up high. Dance if you want to. You are free to shine. Free to laugh. Free to live. Free to let go. Free to love. Free to move on. You are free from the past, from the pain, from the hurt, from the scars, from the wounds.

Will you choose freedom?

Will you fight for it?

Will you believe in your better days?

With love,

Dele

I see you.
I see your pain.
I see your struggle.
I see your effort.
I see your fear.
I see your heart.
I see you there.
I see you.

You are not invisible to the world.
You are not invisible to me.
I see you.
And more than that I care for you.

Take my hand dear friend.
Let me hug the sadness out.
Lean on me in your weakness.
What strength I have is yours.

I see you.
And I am here for you.
