“I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map. And knew that somehow I could find my way back. Then I heard your heart beating; you were in the darkness too. So I stayed in the darkness with you.”
|—||Florence and the Machine|
“Love yourself, accept yourself, forgive yourself and be good to yourself.
Because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.”
-Leo F. Buscaglia
Without you, the world would miss out on your engaging smile and contagious laughter.
It would be without your your unique perspective.
We would be deprived of the insight you have to offer and the opinions you have to share.
Things which only you can provide to the world, things which can only be seen through your eyes and only felt through your heart.
Without you, the world would miss out on all the precious gifts you have to offer.
Whether they be your encouraging hugs or your support and friendship.
Whether they be a random act of kindness or sincere and meaningful advice.
Your presence on this earth and authenticity is the greatest gift of all.
And without you, the world would miss out all of these wonderful things you have to offer to each and every human being you come into contact with, and even those who you don’t.
You have that much power and importance.
Just by existing.
Simply by being, no one other than you.
Those times when the hardest decision was picking a crayon.
