Note To Self

Have you been to visit this blog yet? I love it.

Today's Letters

I felt it was time in light of being half-way through the year to write my own letter.

Dear Self,

What a year last year was. It was rough. Still is rough. Not sure what is going to happen in the rest of this year. One of my coworkers keeps sending me this quote and it always seems to come when I need it the most:

"Everything will be okay in the end. If it is not okay, it isn't the end."

This year has found you be more accepting of our body, no matter what size it is. True, it would be great to be that size 8, but we aren't there yet. So instead of hiding in the clothes, not going places, I'm proud to see you heading out and enjoying life around you.

This year has found you not caring so much about what people think. When we were younger, we used to think that we didn't care what people thought, but really, we did care. This year, I don't know if it finally set in as a mid-life thing or what, but I found if you worry about what other people think it will keep you from your happiness. So, Self, proud of you.

This year, you found your backbone. There have been words, thoughts, opinions that have jumped out in defense of yourself. Sometimes, I wish the fitler on my mouth was a little stronger, but in most cases, I haven't regretted not holding back. Could go back to that not caring about other people think thing.

So this year, Self, I would like to encourage you to continue on this path. Keep up the positive self-image. Enjoy the true freedom of being free from those concerns you used to have about what others were thinking. Work on that back-bone building. Surround yourself with people who are positive. Life is soaring past so quickly, you don't have to time to deal with trivial, petty issues from people who work to bring you down.

So take hold of the rest of this year.  Continue on this path of happiness that is flooding your soul.  The sunshine is back.

Love you muchly,
