Stay



Stay 


because you are not alone. You are not the only one experiencing these feelings and never will you ever go through them alone. I am here. We are here. Take my hand and hold it for as long as you need to. It's okay.

Stay

because your feelings are valid and NOT stupid. It's okay to cry. It's okay to feel weak. It's okay to be needy. It's okay to feel. It's okay to ask someone for a hug and get snot on their shirt. 

Stay

because you were created to be you- there is nobody else like you and that is pretty freaking awesome. So, let's celebrate you and who you are and who you are going to be. 

Stay

because you don't know. You don't know how life will be tomorrow or the next day or the day after that. I know that sounds scary but it's actually really wonderful. Life is filled with so many possibilities and unexpected joys that it is so worth seeing how everything works out. You never know, your favorite author might be coming out with a new book or your favorite TV show just got renewed for another season. There are so many new things for you to try, for you to experience. So, what do you say? Wanna conquer the world with me? 

Stay

because the pain that you are feeling RIGHT NOW will not last forever. I know these moments seem like they keep happening more frequent but it will not last forever. I promise. Yes, there will be bad days but without them, then maybe the good days won't feel so good.

Stay

because somebody loves you. Including your pet. They love you a buttload.  

Stay

because you are enough. Because you are so much more than you think you are. 

Stay

because you can do this. So step off that ledge, my friend. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Open your eyes. Breathe. Check your pulse. Do you feel that? Do you feel that little thump inside? That's you. That's you living. It may feel like you're dead on the inside but you are so alive. So, stay alive. Stay with me. Stay here. There is so much more for you. 

Stay

for you.

My dear friend Grace inspired me to take part in this beautiful message her friend Elissa is spreading around on the interweb, thanks to the organization To Write Love On Her Arms who came up with this year's theme "Stay". I know I am a little bit late in the participation but it is never too late to tell someone why they should stay. So, please join in and spread the word. There is someone out there who needs to be reminded that they are loved and wanted. And hey, maybe you need to be reminded too. 

Thank you.

xx Kenzie

  4. There is so much humanity in this! I think everyone can relate to the feeling of being afraid and unsure of their worth. It's a great reminder to watch out for people and encourage them daily!
