Brace Yourself

I have two things to tell you today

The first is that yes, the future is scary and all that uncertainty and rising panic that comes with not knowing what is going to happen next can be enough to petrify you to the point that you physically don’t feel able to move. It can feel like all your doubts and fears are becoming too much and that you are the smallest being in existence, because the world is suddenly so big and intimidating and looming. You do not know what is going to come your way, and if you let it, that will take over your life completely and then you’ll never live. Taking risks is hard, it is brave and sometimes it feels stupid. But here is the thing I want you to know:

You are everything you will ever need to be and no-one else will ever compare.

No matter how much you feel like you’re not good enough and that other people are better than you, more adept than you, easier to like than you; you are the only you and that counts for more than you think. From the moment you were born, you were a whole person, and that person is wonderful. Do not fear who you are, and do not allow others to make you feel that you are not enough. You are amazing. Just like this baby Tapir.

The second thing is that I started my new book today. Yay.

And that is all.

    • Haha it is crazy cute isn’t it! I couldn’t help myself, I had to put it in there somehow. Tenuous link, but it needed doing.
      And thank you 🙂 Maybe one day I’ll consider it, for now I’m happy reading though.

Any thoughts?
