alice lost in labyrinth

dear everyone,

I just want you to know that things will be okay.

If you're having a difficult time and the situation seems likes it is going to get worse before it gets better - which I'm not going to lie to you, it just very well might - please listen to me one moment. Lean in to me and for this brief time let us feel close.

I want to tell you, my friend, and stranger, you - sharing the same lifetime as I on this dizzy planet - coincidence? Perhaps not. I say this to you: Find your centre strength and hold on - even if your strength seems but a small thing. Let the situation rage and when the calm comes - which it always does - start all over again. Yes, you can always start over again - from anywhere, at anytime - every beginning follows another end.

You are not alone - my friends, my strangers - you.
