Too late to say that?
Probably you’ve been awake for a while now! And you might have gone without hearing it the whole time.
Replying with a non-committal “FINE” when someone asked you what’s up, that is what we’re meant to do as humans– answer meaningful questions with arbitrary phrases.
I know that you may not be fine. I know you might have had a drab day. And I know that something as incredibly mundane, incredibly simple as a “Good morning” text might have made all the difference in the world. It’s really okay if that’s the case. It’s okay to sometimes ache for the smile that this effortless gesture brings with it.
Because the truth is that good morning text feels more than half-hearted means of communication. It’s a sign that we are thought of. Cared for. Adored by someone who might not be physically present with us. It remind us that we are appreciated in our entirety.
So if you did not get at least one good morning text today, here is what I want you to know- you deserve to have a good day!
Not because of some universal law that necessitates about the good things happening to worthwhile people, but because we all do. We all deserve to have a beautifully good morning and a great day, regardless of who loves or appreciates our companionship. Just because someone is not around to appreciate the beautiful complexities of who we are does not mean that we deserve anything less than pure happiness!
And in case there’s no one else to remind you, here is what I would want you to know.
There’s a particular way you laugh, that can lighten up an entire room! There is a way you tilt your head when you are concentrating, which makes you look unbearably loveable – as if you were placed on this earth for us to stare at your charm and to adore you in the most endearing form humanely possible. There is a sound you make when you think; a gentle murmur that speaks volumes about your beautiful mind. There are thousand minute intricacies that make up the tapestry of who you are and not a single one has ceased to exist since the last time somebody loved you.
I know we don’t need any reminders to that. I know that we’re supposed to be strong, self-sufficient and assured about our own worth, questioning only the value of others. But we’re human. We tend to forget. Ain’t we?
We forget that we are lovable. We forget that we’re desirable. But the most important thing we forget is that we do not cease to exist because there’s nobody there to admire it.
Let me tell you, the way you bite your pencil is still cute, even when there’s nobody to mention it. The way your eyes lighten up when you’re talking about your passion is – and endlessly will be – extremely attractive, regardless of who’s there to listen when you speak your heart out. All the little quirks that make you up have not vanished, just because somebody once chose against them. That somebody was too stupid to realize your worth. You still deserve to have a good day, even when there’s no one there to wish it to you. Even if you forget to remind this to yourself.
Someday someone’s going to love all of those tiny things about you. Someone’s going to love the way you sneeze. They’re going to laugh at the way you lose your keys while you’re actually holding them. Someday, somebody is going to stare at you from all across the crowded room and will know exactly how you’re feeling based on the way your head is tilting and feel lucky to look at you this way. Someone is going to appreciate all of your obscurities eventually, but right now they are all only your own. And that’s okay. You will always belong to yourself first and you must!
Here’s what I urge to you if you did not receive a good morning text today: Never forget the things that make you incredible. Don’t let your intricacies slide. Don’t think that the lovable parts of you are gone.
You are so much more than the person who nobody might have texted this morning. You are encompassing. You are fierce. You are a blazing and roaring fire in a world full of people who’ve been burnt. You are a phoenix, rising from the ashes!
So please, refuse to let people diminish your fire. Refuse to be tamed. Refuse to let the embers inside you die because no one can take your place, NO ONE!
At the end of the day, we’re all in charge of what we bring to our lives. So be the person who brings light to your own self, even if nobody else shows up the way to it. Be the person who wishes themselves a good day, even if nobody wishes it to them. Find a way to fuel your flame when no one else remembers to, because the world needs the light that only you can give off!
