Dear Brave Girl,

One step forward, one step forward, one step forward. Two steps forward and one step back. Three steps forward, three steps back. Five steps forward, two steps back. No, this is not a math lesson. This is life, lovely girl!!!

Please don't freak out or beat yourself up when you have setbacks. You are not a failure. You did not make bad plans and your steps backward do not determine your worth as a human being.

Sometimes we think we have things figured out, or that we have overcome something, and then it returns to our lives in a different way, leaving us to feel like we have failed in some way. This is actually a beautiful new chance to learn and grow, and it shows up right when we are ready to take it on, even if it seems otherwise.

Remember that life is a process . . . all of it. There are lots of finish lines, not just one. We get to start new climbs, new races, every day. Some days we are moving forward effortlessly, some days we are learning to work through life in other ways. It's all good and it's all necessary and you are doing a tremendous job.

Reach for the gifts found in the setbacks and decide that tomorrow is a brand new day.

You are so very loved.
