Words for Saya

I hope you take the time to discover who you are and realise that self-acceptance is the key to happiness. Our ability to be kind and compassionate towards ourselves requires us to know and accept who we are, as we are. Once you recognise this, even in times when you are alone, you will never again feel lonely.

That said, I hope you realise you are not alone. Though we are all fighting our own personal battles, we remain united in our common humanity. In the words of Mother Theresa, “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” You belong and you are meant to be here.

I hope you learn to stop being so hard on yourself and instead find forgiveness for your perceived shortcomings. When we stop tearing ourselves down, we are better equipped to lift ourselves up. Lift yourself up. Help to lift others up. Let’s elevate this world’s vibration together.

I hope you can see your failures as opportunities for growth and the stepping stones to your success. Our mistakes don’t limit us, fear does. Always remember that the sky is not the limit, you are – so dream big, and without boundaries.

I hope you can learn to find admiration and inspiration in others, rather than waste your time on comparison and jealousy. There is no one else in the world like you. This is your journey and your life. You are the author of your own narrative, so write your own amazing story.

I hope you find what you love and pursue it with your whole heart. When you uncover your purpose you will be unstoppable. Knowing the “why” behind what we do and then loving what we do, who we are with, and who we are – is what makes this whole journey worthwhile.

I hope you can participate fully in every moment life gives you, the good with the bad. Life isn’t about ignoring the hard bits, but embracing whatever life brings your way with an open heart. Every moment is a gift for growth

I hope you can recognise the incredible power that exists within each and every one of us. Tap into that spark of infinite energy. Life is yours for the taking. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. Remember that when nothing is certain, anything is possible.

I hope you focus on your haves, rather than have nots. We are confined only by the walls we build ourselves. You are enough, you have enough, you do enough – let enough, be enough.

Never forget:

  • In a world where you can be anyone, be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
  • In a world where you can do anything, do what you love. When you find what drives you, no one will be able to hold you back, least of all yourself.
  • In a world where you can be anything, be kind. As we fight our own battles, we could all use a little more kindness.
  • In a world where you can give anything, give help. Let’s build bridges not walls.
  • In a world where you can feel anything, choose to feel the love. The more you act as though love is all around you, the more you will find it truly is.
