Yes, YOU. You know who you are. You have been wrestling with conflicting thoughts, and I want you to know, I have been where you are. It is a terrible place to be, this in-between place of where you used to be, and where you want to be, that is somehow so far from where you thought you would be.
Should you stay this course, or should you head in another direction? Should you just accept this fate you seem to have grown accustomed to, or should you question everything?
Let me ask you this. Is your soul being fed, or is it always looking for something more? Do you feel more alive each morning when you wake up, or do you feel somehow less? When you breathe, does air fill your lungs with satisfying breath, or are you panting the quick, shallow breaths of anxiety?
When nights seem endless because sleep won't come; when days are dark with troubled thoughts; when the heaviness inside fills you with dread, you can be sure that it is time for change. Your body senses when your spirit is shriveling, and alerts you it is time to get back to who you really are; to be true to yourself.
Have you forgotten how big your dreams are? Have you forgotten that little girl inside you who lives her life so big there's no time for a day that isn't full of spontaneous joy, laughter and sparkles?
Your heart and spirit already know what your mind is slower to accept. You will have brief moments of self-doubt and second-guessing. You might think you cannot do the very thing you must. But you would be wrong.
When you wonder whether you are enough; know this: you are so much more than just enough. You are strong. Full of faith. Beautiful. Full of hope. Smart. Full of love. Compassionate. Full of life. Amazing. You are brave.
Do not lose sight of the vision you have for your life. Return to the path you were traveling; your path. Not everyone will understand and appreciate your journey, but those who love you will understand and appreciate your need to take care of yourself.
Don't settle, dear one. Don't you dare settle. You are meant to live your life with fierce love and joy, never lose sight of your purpose. Follow your heart; it will take you where you need to be.
You've got this.
