In case you haven’t heard, I have something I need to share.
In case you haven’t heard, it might be a little hard to say.
In case you haven’t heard, I wanted to take time out of my day not to gossip, not to lay blame, not to drag someone else’s name through the mud. I wanted to talk about YOU.
See, we are all in this game of life together. We all have to find a way to get along. Perhaps that means that we need to be more deliberate in the things we say and do. Perhaps we need to step away. Whatever the choice, it is ours to make, and there should be no judgment which choice we make.
In case you haven’t heard, you have such a grand purpose in this world that even the greatest steel couldn’t keep you shackled from that truth. Your purpose won’t be the same as mine – how could it? For we are both created in our own unique ways with strengths and talents that blend the lines of convention.
You are meant for so much more!
In case you haven’t heard, you are an important piece to this world-sized puzzle filled with highs and lows, mountains and valleys, good and bad. It may be hard to see the sunlight when the morning begins in darkness, but I am here to tell you that each and every day that sun rises, even if hidden behind cloudy skies.
You are there.
We are there together.
In case you haven’t heard, you are a beautiful person. While the world may catch a glimpse of the awkwardness you feel, there are many more whose vision travels straight to your heart.
Your heart is beautiful. You are beautiful. You inspire others without even knowing, simply by striving to be the best version of yourself each day.
And even on those days when you feel you can’t possibly take another step?
You inspire even more when you do.
In case you haven’t heard, you are important. You were born into this world by circumstance, but you will live this world by choice. Your imprint is everlasting. For even when the oceans of chaos tumble across the sands, the shells of your existence will burrow deep to be discovered again by someone else right in the moment they need it most.
Your life has value, purpose, gain.
In case you haven’t heard, you are loved. Not for what you’ve accomplished, not for being who the world expects you to be, but for being exactly what you were created to be.
There are people right now who will smile at the mention of your name. Their eyes will light up with the memories of you and stories will flood their mind of those moments that matter most.
I want you to be here for those moments. I want you to feel the love that radiates from their souls when they think of you. I want you to know that you – yes, you – are so very important to this world that no amount of horror and hate can pierce the pure heart of that love.
In case you haven’t heard, you are needed.
You are wanted.
Even on the darkest of days.
