Yes, YOU. The one behind the computer screen. The one with the doubts and fears and a whole chorus of voices in your head telling you you’re not good enough. That you’ll never be good enough. The same voices who like to point out the distance you have yet to cover and just how far you still have to go. In kilometers. Because it sounds like more.
To the world-wearied dreamer behind the computer screen, the one with the tired-eyes and the questions that are still unanswered. I’m talking to YOU.
For YOU have already come farther than you could ever know. The YOU of today is already a million times better than the you who just got started. YOU have learned so much and given more than you knew you had in you. YOU have been a friend and a light in this world. And whether you believe it or not, YOU have already helped others along the way. And right now at this very moment, there is someone looking at where YOU are and wondering if they’ll ever make it there too.
Yes YOU, I’m talking to YOU. Right where YOU are right now.
YOU are far more beautiful than you could ever imagine. YOU have dreams in your heart and breath in your lungs and a fire that won’t easily be put out. Not like a spark or a flash in the pan, that burns brightly for just but a moment and then is gone forever as if it never happened. No, not like that. But like an ember. Like a smolder. Like a slow-burning coal that just burns brighter the longer it goes. YOU are on fire friend. And it’s the kind of fire that warms everyone around you as you go.
So listen up YOU. Because I’m only going to say this as many times as you need to hear it.
There is greatness in YOU. This old world is aching for the light that only YOU can shine. YOU are a lamp and a lantern at the feet of those lucky enough to cross your path. And YOU are leading the way.
YOU will get there. YOU will change things. YOU will see that everything YOU are right now was always more than enough.
YOU have come farther than you know friend.
And I for one, can’t wait to see where YOU go next.
Rock it out,
