It’s easy to forget in a world that is quite literally reeling that small hurts still, well, hurt.
I have personally experienced changes this year that could be classified as both large and small in emotional scale. And something I noticed about both? They still hurt.
You might ask yourself, if you’re in the middle of what the world would perceive as a Small Fight, “What right do I have to be upset with this small thing when the whole world around me is falling apart?”
So here is my reminder for you today: Your pain is valid, and you have every right to acknowledge it.
Your call to arms today might not be to muscle through a massive problem or break glass ceilings. Your call might be to slog through, smile, find something small to look upward and say, Thanks, for. Maybe just to give the world back a small piece of you that yesterday you were too scared to do.
But please, be reminded that no matter the battle you’re fighting, you and your heart are most certainly worth the time it takes to pause, and heal.
I’m here cheering you on, in battles both big and small. We got this. ❤️
