March is for…

I found out recently that one of my friends from school has been in hospital for five years with anorexia. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about her – what she’s going through and what she feels about herself.

As I’ve sat down today to write a little something for March, it’s not just my friend that is on my mind… it’s also you girls who have sent me questions about difficult things that you’re facing at the moment. Just as I’ve put pen to paper the two words that are filling my head are

march on.

It sounds kind of cheesy, but I mean it from the depths of my heart.

Whatever you’re going though, wherever you are, whatever has happened in the past, march on, keep going and never give up.

Know that you are enough, just as you are. You are talented even if you don’t know it. You are beautiful even if you don’t believe it. You are not alone even if you think you are.

There is so much out there in this world to see, do and understand – sometimes it’s overwhelming and we can end up feeling a bit lost.

Sometimes you can feel like you’re in a long dark tunnel where things are painful, confusing and you hurt. All you want to do is sit down and stay there because you’re tired of it all. It’s hard to see, because it’s dark where you are, but there are lots of people walking beside you experiencing similar feelings on their own journey.

Don’t stay still, stand up, lift your head and march forward towards the end of the tunnel, step by step.

You might not see the light yet, but I have and it’s worth running towards.
