You make a difference every day.
Every ‘are you okay’?
Every piece of art.
It makes a difference.
And don’t let anyone tell you different. Who you are is a hero to someone. You lead your story, and you can control that story. Who you are is special, strong, creative and great. Don’t let anyone tell you different. Family members don’t know you better than you know you. Lies don’t get to tell you your worth. Your friends don’t get to decide your worth for you and neither do strangers on the subway.
When you smile, lights of hope shine around you.
And when you cry, the sky falls with tears.
When you laugh, fairies around the world sprout wings.
When you scream, volcanoes erupt.
Never underestimate your worth.
You are a light.
You are someone’s smile.
You are art.
You are a hero.
You may have been dragged through the mud, but stand up, take a shower, and be everything you can be.
Be the hero you need.
Because you are worth it.
