i recognize you

I recognize you.

I recognize that you do so much and that it sometimes seems like people don’t notice.

I recognize that you’re doing your best.

I recognize that it’s hard to get up in the morning, but you do it.

I recognize that you’re actively trying to make this world better.

I recognize that you’re intentionally growing.

I recognize that it isn’t easy.

I recognize that you’re working on stating your needs.

I recognize that you’ve surmounted staggering odds to get where you are today.

I recognize that it takes courage to state your boundaries the way you’re learning to.

I recognize that you just did something that you are so proud of. And I’m proud of you.

I recognize that to have accomplished what you have with such limited resources speaks volumes about your tenacity.

I recognize that you’re needing some recognition. And you’re not quite sure how to give it to yourself yet.

I recognize that you’re feeling unsure about asking for it.

So, yes, I recognize you.

I have complete and total faith that soon you’ll figure out how to recognize you, too.

    Hi Kylie – such wonderful words … I see so much of so many of us in those words. I enjoy your blog. Your mom sent this to me – she is so wonderful. I love your mom – you are fortunate to have such a fabulous caring mom. I know at times there are struggles. I have them all toooooo often myself. You are a truly beautiful person. Never forget that.
