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!

It’s because I have known the bitterness of pain that I am grateful for the sweet taste of joy.

With love,

The practice of courage is doing small things with love. We begin to dismantle what is overwhelming by beginning the journey of involvement one hand at a time, one kindness at a time, one utterance of truth at a time. From the outside, things that require courage seem impossible, but once we begin, we’re no longer on the outside. This lets us see more. This lets us feel the current of the situation we have to cross. Any small act of love shows us the next step to be taken. So it’s imperative to stop rehearsing the perfect starting point and just begin.

The soul needs autumn. Let what’s dead fall. Let the wind sweep it up and blow it away. Your colors are changing; it’s so beautiful. Don’t be sad it was a part of you and now is gone. Some things have to die. It’s their season. You can’t hold on. This is your season to let it all fall. Shed what’s dead. Be free, stand tall. There will be a time to bloom again.

My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence.

In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain the old pain.
Mary Manin Morrissey (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

You are not a waste of space or time. You are not leftovers. You are not hopeless. You are not too much or too little. You are not worthless. You are not unlovely nor unseen. You are not meaningless. You are not ugly, dirty, or filthy. You are not a lost cause. You are not a shameful thing. You are not hateful. You are not stupid. You are not what those negative voices or people say you are. Love — you are not pointless.

You are precious.
You are precious.
You are precious.
You are precious.
You are precious.
You are precious.
You are precious.

I cannot say it enough — You are so very precious. I pray every single day you would declare this truth over yourself. You are a work of art. You are glorious and radiant. You are more than enough. Just as you are right now is lovely, worthy, beautiful, awesome, and so very precious.

You are loved.
You are seen.
You are needed.
You are meaningful.
You are one of a kind.

We love you.
We see you.
We care about you.
We are here for you.

With love,

Dele
