Many of us need that reminder in our lives, especially now more than ever. Circumstances are odd, personally, I only heard/read/or watched the things we are going through now. One morning you wake up and you find yourself locked in your own house, seeing the outside but can't go! watching people dying from a virus that you can't see! and that's only to name a few of the things that are happening right now. I will not bore you with those, plus this piece to lift you up not to remind you of what you are, already, living, so moving on...
There are so many articles, pieces of writings, groups, and individuals who are just like me - trying to seize this to their best advantage. I opened up my writing channels, started my book, and got involved in online communities to open up an open channel to communicate with people around me. Trying to help in the best ways I can: writing and listening. This brings me to what I am trying to say, although this might seem like "not much" to others, it is a lot for me. I decided to give all I can with what I have, and I am doing just that. You should, if you are not already, do the same.
There are one million things, and more, you can do to make you feel accomplished and satisfied with yourself. But, none of those things will help you feel good if your mind is decided on putting you down and belittling your efforts. Even if all you do is to wake up, live through the day, and go back to sleep- you are still helping. You are helping yourself to survive and giving yourself some hope that "I am barely alive today, but I am breathing. I did not give up, and I am proud of myself for doing that." Every single one of us is doing something, even if we are not doing anything at all. If we are alive, that means we did not give up, we did not surrender.
We are the miracles of the creator, and if you do not believe in one, then you are the miracle of the universe. We are born with greatness written in our DNA, but some of us lose it on our way to survive. If you are not already doing that, now it is the time to claim your greatness back. These are not only some words you are reading. It is a sign that you are on the way to greatness. You do not have to be famous and known to be awesome. All you have to do is to be kind to yourself and value it the most. Then, and only then, you will be truly great.
