On the heels of two tragic celebrity suicides, I don’t doubt that all of you have seen your social media feeds flooded with this message. However, I think every person with a platform should be sharing. While I know many of you, I don’t know all of you. And I don’t know your individual struggles. I hope that I bring light, happiness and encouragement to my corner of the internet every day. Today I just want to continue spreading the message that so many others are sharing right now: You are enough. If you think you are not, there is help.

Keep your eyes, ears and heart open. Check on each other. Tell you kids to check on each other.
I was cleaning out my photos on my phone today and came across this. I was in Whit’s classroom back in December and saw this reminder he had written himself on a post-it and stuck to his desk. I asked him about it and he said he just wanted to remember some of the things he’s doing good at and not forget to keep doing good at them.
What I’m doing well
- Not rushing on everything
- Having a good attitude a lot of the time
- Being nice to everybody
You know this makes me so proud. A lot can be learned from our kids. I also love that he is realistic and therefore his goals are attainable. He’s given himself a little room to mess up. A little grace. Some things he might rush on. Some times he might have a bad attitude. That’s okay. He’s aiming for good. <3
