I am safe.

I am protected.

I am loving.

I am loved.

I create peace.

I speak sunrays.

I smile gratitude.

I rise with affirmations and gratitude. On those mornings when my anxiety’s attempting to Geppetto me into doing nothing or screaming statistics in my ear, I quiet the noise with gratitude. When I feel like I have nothing, I wiggle my toes and fingers, rub my hands together, blink and smile. That’s how I remind myself that if I don’t do anything more in the day, I’ve already won because I’ve defeated the voices that told me not to rise.

I encourage you to rise. Fuck those voices.

Breath in your body means you’ve got a reason to live.

You’re a gift.

Your existence is important, even if you don’t feel like it in the moment,
