Dear Self, You. Are. Awesome. Okay...I know you don't really believe that, but do it...believe it. Look in the mirror. No...your hair is fine...put down the makeup...now...look. You have wrinkles...from the years of laughter spent with the ones you love, the friends...your mommy...your family...your kind hubby...your son. You have full round cheeks...that have been covered in tears, from laughter...from heart break...from mourning...from your sons first moments on your chest...from your first kiss as husband and wife...from pain...from growth. You have your Mommy's nose...I love the way she always wrinkled it in laughter...and you do the same...and so do your sisters. You have a forehead only your husband could love. You have beautiful hazel eyes that your husband first noticed changed colors and now you have passed down to your son. You have a genuine smile that someone once told you felt so kind that it filled the room.
The truth is, you are beautiful. You are kind to everyone, but yourself. Be kind to yourself. I miss you when you don't feel like yourself. Love yourself.
With so much love,
