It’s wonderful having you on our blog. The Safe Communities Task Force is forever grateful!
For no particular reason and in no special order I’ve written out a few messages many of us, if not all, need to hear from time to time. Consider borrowing one and offering it to someone close to you this week.
- You have more power than you realize
- Voices can be loud. Voices can be soft. Regardless, no one will hear it if you don’t speak up. Use your voice, for yourself or others
- I believe in you! You can do it!
- Every time you offer your heart to someone your capacity for love grows
- I’m sending you all the wonderment I can muster
- You’re allowed to be the example. You can be the first one to raise your hand and tell your story and you can be the first one to share your truth
- You are not alone
- I’m proud of you
- You are valuable and important
- Thank you
- “Hey there, I’m thinking of you. Hope you are well.”
- You are capable of great things
- No one call tell you what you are or what you aren’t
- You have unique gifts and incredible qualities someone, somewhere is meant to encounter and appreciate
- I’m truly sorry
- Your story is unfolding and if you’ve read great literature you know things can change in an instant, for the better. One page can redirect the entire story
- Our actions have consequences others can feel
- It’s possible to experience emotions without allowing them power over you
- Caring for self is equally important as caring for others
- It’s okay to feel _______ (afraid, hurt, upset, angry, sad). Acknowledge it, feel it and let it move through you
- Pause and consider how far you’ve come, what you’ve faced. You’ve been through a lot
- Flight, fight or freeze; your response is valid
- You are forgiven, always
