Love, you x

Note to self:

Take it easy on yourself and be kind.
Say sorry, try to mean it.
Say it ‘til you do.
Forgive when you don’t feel it.
Love until you do.
Put grace into practice.
Model compassion.
Parent and nurture;
don’t shout, don’t despise.
Speak honestly and carefully
as to a child.

Rest when you need to.

Never underestimate treats.
Listen to your body as well as your heart.
Breathe.
You can’t be overwhelmed forever.
It’s okay to leave the light on.
While there are trains, you’re never trapped.
Tomorrow will happen.
It’ll all come out in the wash.
It’s not weak to need help.
Or just to want it.
You’re cut from a certain kind of cloth.
Don’t worry. There’s a lot of it around.
