and then this came today...

Dear Pure Girl,

Growth, healing, change. They all come with a rollercoaster of emotions. 
Sometimes we feel like we are up to the challenge, sometimes we forget 
there's even a challenge. Then, the next minute, we can be bursting
into tears with overwhelm, feeling like there's NO WAY we can meet the 

None of the emotions are wrong.They are all part of the journey. 
All of the emotions are temporary, though sometimes we feel like we are
in a funk that might last forever. Don't be afraid of what you are 
feeling. Let yourself feel it. Hear out your feelings. Listen to what 
they have to say, what they have to teach. Often emotions will linger 
until we really listen to them instead of trying to stuff them down to 
a hidden place.

Difficult feelings will pass. Good feelings will come back. Joy will 
come back, confidence will come back, dreams will come back, laughter 
will come back. Don't be afraid when you are feeling down that you will 
never feel right again. Sometimes feeling down is just where you need 
to be to hear what your soul is trying to tell you.

Just listen, dear girl. Listen closely and be patient.You will feel 

right again.

You are strong, amazing and competent. 

You have come such a long way, and you can keep going.

Brave Girls
