Today’s note for ‘Dearie’ offers a gentle reminder to be yourself.

IF we’re not used to putting that idea into practice ourselves, then it can certainly feel vulnerable, and demand a special kind of courage. Yet, in the long run, it pays in unforseeable ways to come as you are, to listen and respond with authenticity, and to hunch your way along your own path.

Your life is yours, and your superpower is your individuality. Who knows what the world is deeply needing that only you–with your peculiar lived experience and perspective–might be able to provide?

You have a place in the world. Remember that…

About Notes to Dearie
With so much anxiety, tension, and conflict in the world right now, I’m playing a wee game and scattering some optimism for people to discover. Find a note to ‘Dearie’? That’s from me! All messages are composed, hand written, and unless otherwise noted also placed and photographed by me. If you’ve come across one of my notes, let me know! I’d love to hear how it happened!

I never know who might discover these notes, but I hope Serendipity will put these words in front of someone who could use them, which is why I share them here as well.
