I wrote this song for my friend, Olivia.
Thank you for being who you were, because knowing you made my life so much brighter.
"Sometimes you gotta just do something for yourself,
learn to love who you are before somebody else.”When you’re trying to invest all your time and energy into someone else, it’s easy to forget that you need to invest in yourself too. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last year, more specifically how far I would go out of my way for the well being of the people I care about, but then I’d be so exhausted at the end of it all. I’ve found so much strength in knowing that I’ve been blessed with an amazing group of people around me, and all I ever want to do is do right by them. But you can care about people all you want and give as much of yourself as you can, and still be empty. And if you’re empty, what’s left for you to give to others?
Take the time to invest in yourself. Pursue what inspires you and makes you happy. And don’t forget that you are significant too. You don’t need someone else to tell you what you mean to them to know your value. The truth is you’re worth more than you’ll ever be able to comprehend. You were made with so much love in the image of greatness. Know your worth and appreciate the person you are.
Happy Valentine’s Day, friends.
Love is a thing I feel very much towards you.
