Reminders

Remember not to compare yourself to strangers on the internet. 

Remember not to let the numbers—of likes, of followers, of zeros on a check—make you feel like you are less than, because you are not. You are enough.

Remember your dreams are valid.

Remember to start. There is no market for a writer that doesn’t write, but there are infinite possibilities for a first draft and a first step. 

Remember to take care of yourself, to love yourself, and to be your own greatest fan. 

Remember your work has already made a difference if it saved you, because your life is just as important as that of your imaginary audience.  

Remember you are alive. How beautiful, miraculous, and extraordinary it is…to be you and alive.


Revised and rewritten. Not quite a poem…but a series of reminders I need from time to time and sharing for anyone else who may need them too.
