Today there is someone who is waking up heartbroken thinking they will never love again.
Today someone will wake up hungover from the poison they put in their body thinking recovery isn’t possible. Today someone will wake up at the hand of a narcissist feeling deflated and broken.
Today someone will wake up without a job as the aftermath of yesterday’s board meeting. Someone will battle anxiety and depression. Someone will closet eat. Someone will gamble. Someone will struggle with unfaithfulness or unfairness.
Today is also the day someone will hear the birds for the first time in a while. Today someone will draw the shades open and let the light in after decades. Today someone will feel hope and comfort.
Today someone will be cured of an insidious disease. Today someone will stop and pick a wildflower. Today someone will feel the warmth of the sun.
We are not stuck. We are not hopeless. We need not be afraid. We are warriors. Tuesdays are for morning runs, and coffee shops. For telling a friend you love them and for appreciating that even when the wildflowers think no ones sees their beauty…. I do.
“I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower. Strong enough to rise again after being trampled on, tough enough to weather even the worst of the summer storms, and able to grow and flourish even in the most be broken places.” ~ ng
