I had a different post planned for this week. But I’m throwing it out because I think someone out there needs to hear this…
It’s been hard lately, hasn’t it? You do your best and some days it still feels like it’s not enough. You wonder if everyone else might have it more together than you. But those are lies and here’s what’s true…
Yes, you feel weary sometimes but you’re still a kick-butt warrior. You get up every morning and you face a new day. You put one foot in front of the other. You don’t let fear stop you. You walk through uncertainty and challenges and you don’t quit.
You don’t have to do this perfectly. You might have moments when tears come to your eyes or the edge of your voice becomes sharper than you’d like. But this doesn’t mean you’re failing. It means you are a brave human fighting for what matters.
You’re in a season that requires courage beyond anything that has come before. Of course you feel unsure sometimes. Of course you wonder if you have any idea what you’re doing. This is what comes with conquering new territory.
Don’t stop now. You’re farther up the mountain than it seems. You’ve come so far. You will make it. You’re taking one more small step today and that’s enough.
And you are not alone…
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Is. 41:10
You are loved as you are, where you are today, and you’re still climbing.
Cheering You On,
p.s. Who in your life needs to hear this today too?
*I recently did a video on Instagram about embracing imperfection with my friends and fellow authors Mary Marantz (Dirt: Growing Strong Roots in What Makes the Broken Beautiful) and Myquillyn Smith (Welcome Home: A Cozy Minimalist Guide to Decorating and Hosting All Year Long). You’ll love their words in our conversation and in their books!
