My beautifully brave sister in law posted a note to my wonderful mother in law today on Facebook. I read it. I gasped. I loved it immediately.
This is what I need. This is what all women need. How could I have not known about this earlier?
It’s a site called http://bravegirlsclub.com/. The letter I read was from their Daily Truths emails which seem to always start with “A little bird told me . . . ” and then goes on to give you a daily boost.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
I flipped through some of their Daily Truths and this one stuck with me. This is for my girls down in a hole of despair and pain. Baby, it will get better.
I’ll recreate the whole note here and link to it as well so you can see the pretty graphics:
Dear Extraordinary Girl,
The path to the best places for us sometimes must take a trip through the muck to get to the other side of it. Sometimes that truly is the only way.
When we are in the middle of it, it feels senseless and like such a complete waste of time (let alone not very comfortable)When we are in painful places in life, or even just annoyingly uncomfortable places, it’s important to remember that we are headed somewhere else if we want to be.
We do not have to stay stuck there. Sometimes it takes a while to work our way out of it, and sometimes we don’t know how we got there in the first place, but mucky yucky places on the path of life are always temporary if we are willing to work our way out of them.
We are not meant to stay stuck. We are not meant to be stagnant. We are not meant to be in pain for any longer than it is necessary to teach us. We are meant to shine, to fly and to have joy. Even when we are in a place where it’s nearly impossible to do this, there is always a way out of that mucky place. It is always temporary.
Please believe this, beautiful friend.
If you are in a mucky spot, just keep going, keep going ’til you get to the other side of it. It will be SO worth it.
Don’t you dare give up now.
You are so loved.

You tell me what woman doesn’t need a daily affirmation like this and I’ll then prove that woman is really a man. And sometimes men need them too.
YOU ARE SO LOVED. Every one of you.
