You Are a Badass: A Celebration of Your Strength and Growth

Hey there, beautiful people! Let's talk about something truly important today: YOU.

We spend so much time chasing goals, battling challenges, and striving to be better that it's easy to forget how far we've already come. This is your official permission to take give yourself a high five, and celebrate the amazing person you are. 

Think back. Remember that time you conquered a fear you thought would paralyze you forever? Or how about when you picked yourself up after a crushing setback and kept moving forward? Those moments, big or small, are testaments to your incredible strength and resilience.

Maybe you haven't reached the peak of Mount Everest (yet!), but you've climbed your own personal mountain range. You've faced down anxieties, learned new skills, and grown in ways you never imagined. That's something to be fiercely proud of.

And it's not just about overcoming obstacles. Celebrate your victories, big and small! Did you finally master that challenging recipe? Did you land your dream job? Did you simply have the courage to put yourself out there and try something new? These moments, too, deserve a high five.

You are more than your accomplishments, of course. You are kind, you are funny, you are creative. You bring light and laughter to the world, and your presence makes a difference. Don't forget to celebrate the person you are at your core, the one with the big heart and the beautiful soul.

So take a deep breath, make it a lions breath, wonderful human. Take a moment to acknowledge the battles you've won, the lessons you've learned, and the incredible person you've become.

Sharing the prose which inspired me to share my thoughts on success, strength and all the wonder that is you.

You thought you can’t take anymore, you did.  You felt a little less pain.    you thought of giving up, you found a reason to keep going.  Every time you thought you would never smile again, you saw or heard something funny that made you laugh until your stomach hurt.    you thought you’re too tired to move forward, you found the strength to do it anyways.  Every time you thought you can’t face the world, you found the courage to raise your head and look around you.  Every time you thought you would never be whole again, you put yourself together.  This might not be the end of your trial, but like every other time you’ll get yourself through it.  In the meanwhile give yourself more credit for coming this far. 

There is healing.  There is hope.
