Stick With It

“Promise me you’ll always remember:  You’re braver than you believe and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” ~ Christopher Robin to Pooh (A.A. Milne)

Today was one of those days. No matter how hard I tried, I didn’t cope well with the crap. You know, that ‘stuff’ that happens in the middle of your plans for your life. The people who tell you what you’re doing doesn’t matter … or worse yet, is worthless. The constant everyday pressures.

So I decided to ditch my planned email for today and just send you a note of encouragement.

I could have used a coach today. Someone to tell me that no matter what happens, I can make it. I can stay focused, be effective, and eventually WIN. Someone I could really talk with who’d tell me, “I understand. Here’s how to cope.”

I firmly believe that you reap what you sow, so I’m going to tell you,  “No matter what’s going on in your life, you can make it. You are stronger, smarter and better than you think you are.

“Whoever is telling you that you can’t succeed doesn’t know the real YOU.”

For tonight, I’ll tell you to keep dreaming BIG dreams, to stay focused on them and keep trying.

No matter what happens.

No matter how hard It gets.

Tell yourself – even if no one else will tell you – that you already are a success. You are valuable, worthy, and capable.

Be good to yourself. Get enough sleep, eat well and take time to play.

I value you, dear friend. Together, we can lean on each other.

And tomorrow will be a better day.

Sweet dreams.
