"Hey, you. Yes, YOU. There may be many people reading this but we need you to take a second and read these words. We don’t know whether you are in your cubicle, on your couch, or at a coffee shop. You took a break to check instagram, tumblr, facebook, or twitter, and now you’re reading these words. That means you are ALIVE. And we want to take this moment to tell you: You are IMPORTANT. You are PRECIOUS. You are VALUED. You are STRONG. Stronger than you know. Please remember this today and tomorrow, and return to these words again on heavy days. Thank you for simply being.”
