This Is Your Sign

Sometimes we don't do things because we're nervous, anxious, and/or don't feel like we have the ability to accomplish what we want. Sometimes we lose the one thing we've wanted for so long. Sometimes we want to give up and scream and break plates. Sometimes we just want someone to tell us what to do because we feels so brain dead that we aren't sure what to do now.



I believe in you. I believe that you are a competent and capable human being who can do anything their heart desires. I believe in the magic of hope and self-confidence. I believe in telling yourself that you are awesome even when you don't believe it, because fake it 'til you make it is a real 'thing'.

Life is Frustrating. Life is Complicated. As much as we want it to, Life does not owe us anything. Life makes you earn - earn smiles, earn laughter, earn friends, earn trophies. It will be hard, but you are more capable than you have ever thought. Draw on the energy of new experiences.

So, this is your sign: deviate from your norm. Say "yes" to your roommate's blind date. Read that extra article for your paper. Mentor someone younger than you. Volunteer at a Senior Center. Do a load of laundry even though you haven't worn half of your closet. Do something out of your ordinary that may make you happy or sad or angry. Life goes on, but it's more fun when you want it to.

xx
Catch you next time.
