"It's a good feeling to know that everything you need is right there for you." ~ Tangobaby ~
After a long day at Teen Voices, I decided to catch up with all the blogs I follow. Tangobaby is always a treat, but she was especially amazing today. She has started a new word and image project and shared one example of the work she is doing here. As well-written and moving as her story was, it was her comment at the end of the post that grabbed hold of me, "It's a good feeling to know that everything you need is right there for you."
A startling and comforting truth. Everything you need is right there for you.
I sometimes wonder about a lot of things. I slog my way through emotional minefields. I struggle to be the best me I can be. I dream big dreams unsure of whether I'll ever be able to accomplish them. Sometimes the smallest tasks feel impossible.
Then along comes Tangobaby, "It's a good feeling to know that everything you need is right there for you."
And without hesitation I agree with her, "Well, yes, Tangobaby, you are exactly correct and those are exactly the words I need to hear right now, right here in this moment."
These are words I will remember. These are words I will write across the top of my wipe-off calendar on the fridge. These words will be written across my whiteboard in the office. These words will be penned meticulously in silver ink on sea green paper and tacked on my inspiration board.
These words are powerful and true.
