Having recently suffered from burnout and bouts of depression I love this post. Its hard to explain it. When I was in my darkest moments, lacking all motivation I just wanted to know that if I didn't succeed or complete some class or get out of bed on a certain day, that I was still okay.

"That I would be good" by Alanis Morissette is very validating and comforting to me. Failure is one of my biggest fears and it can be so debilitating. Anyways, just look at the lyrics:

That I would be good even if I did nothing
That I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
That I would be good if I got and stayed sick
That I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

That I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great if I was no longer queen
That I would be grand if I was not all knowing

That I would be loved even when I numb myself
That I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
That I would be loved even when I was fuming
That I would be good even if I was clingy

That I would be good even if I lost sanity
That I would be good whether with or without you

More than others I have learned how important it is to forgive, love, and support myself even when I fall short of my expectations. That my weakness now doesn't erase the good I have done and that I can and will be better one small step at a time.

Let your loved ones know you will love them unconditionally! Even if they pull their hair out or slip up, or fall short.

Hey Alyssa, I just wanted to say that I care about you. You've always been a great friend to me and you're one of the kindest, most capable people I know. What I see in you is a person who cares about others and knows how to help them, in part because of the trials you have been through yourself. You have a quiet, strong way of taking care of people. It is evident, when I or others are around you, that God is present in your life and his Spirit is in you.

Nor am I under any impression that you are perfect. You are not perfect, not even in any aspect that I just mentioned, perhaps. But I am dead certain that you are good, very good.

God be with you, my friend!

Thank you so much! I was kind of doing this (but not correctly) so its great to learn the proper technique! It's kind of fun to just keep doing it forever (except I'm sure i'd drive my roommates nuts) I tried guitar way back when and it was too big for me, but the Ukulele is perfect! I'm loving it so far~! Keep the lessons coming! ♥

as a wee lass this instilled so much fear in me. i'd shudder whenever it came on. I wanted to figure out what it was and now I know. I was too young at the time to make heads of tales of what was going on....just a creepy cyclone guy
