Dear Cowgirl, 

Stop it.  

Stop trying to please them. 





Stop thinking you have to be perfect. 

Stop questioning your own heart. 

Stop wondering why you aren’t “there,” and love your “here.” 

I know there’s so much pressure, stress… real life.  

I know bills need to be paid, relationships maintained, and needs met.  

I know the truck broke down, the kids won’t stop yelling, and you don’t know if you can take much more.  

I know school is too much, that money is tight and you don’t know if you made the right decision last week… but stop.  

For one moment, take a deep breath.  

You are doing JUST enough.  

You are doing everything you need. 

You are excelling even when you feel like you’re standing still.  

You are enough. 

It is enough. 

You have got this. 

I promise.
