Life can get pretty messy and unsettling. Rarely are we able to just coast through without a few mishaps, unlucky breaks, a little bad luck or very unfortunate occurrences. Sometimes it all feels a little overwhelming and unfair and we despair and cry out for a break. We can get mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted at the constant onslaught of bad news and chaos.
The year 2020 has certainly been a time of unsettling and disturbing moments. I think it’s safe to say, we’ll all be happy to let this year fade into the past with the hope the next year will be less challenging.
It’s easy to turn to anything that will ease our frayed nerves; overeating, alcohol, gambling, too much shopping or recreational drug use. We must, however, remain strong. We must keep ourselves together because this time will pass and we have to be ready for the good days ahead. The light at the end of the tunnel may seem far off but if we continue to put one foot in front of the other we will get there.
Not only must you hold yourself upright for your own sake but also for the sake of the people who love you and depend on you. You are important and wanted. Don’t give up or give in.
So, put on your big girl panties and face whatever onslaught of negativity that may be heading your way. Like all the times in the past, you can and will get through life’s messy moments because you are Pretty, Plus and Proud. You are tough. You are strong. You are resilient. You are smart. You are important. You are needed. You are wanted. You are a fighter who will come out on top!
Now go slay the day!
