It’s going to be a different kind of post today, more me writing reminders to myself that you, dear readers, may find cryptic.

I’ll explain all this in time. For now, let me just process all this mumble jumble of thoughts the best way I know how: by writing them down.

Here goes:

  • Step back and reorient myself. Remember where I am and where I want to go.
  • Nothing is a “make or break” deal.
  • The only person who should determine my worth is myself.
  • It’s okay to not be good at something.
  • If you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry about it.
  • It’s okay to feel down or sad sometimes. Embrace it. It will pass.
  • Mood Meter is awesome. Use it.
  • I make my own life.
  • It’s good to have friends. Good ones are especially… special. Cherish them.
  • It’s okay to get frustrated. Just don’t blow it out of proportion.
  • Remember to write. Not for others, but for myself. Writing brings me joy. Do it often.
  • No more all-dayers. Manage your energy. You know better than to have no breaks or skip meals. Silly, silly Val.
  • I am me. I hold the wheel. No one holds my life hostage. Don’t make my life conditional upon something/someone external.
  • I won’t get everything I want in life. And that’s fine. Really.
  • “Life is short. Life is sweet. Life is all that matters.”
  • Just enjoy the ride.

And that’s it for the cryptic reminders… for now.

Hope you’re all doing well!
