Dear Self

IT'S THE LAST DAY OF THE 30 DAYS OF TRUTH! I am proud of myself. I think I only missed two days. For today, day 30, I am supposed to write a letter to myself telling myself everything I love about ME. Interesting, right?

Dear Self,
I must admit. I think you are one pretty amazing chick! I know it's hard to pay compliments to yourself, but let's see what I can come up with. You can kinda refer to day 2 of the 30 days of truth as that day the "truth" of the day was also things that you love about yourself. My short version of that? My smile, and my passion for animals. My smile because I get SO many compliments on it, and my dad worked hard to afford the two years of braces I needed to GET this smile. And my passion for animals because I know that is my momma shining through me. Expanding beyond that? I'd say I love my ability to forgive so freely. Some may say this makes me naive and gullible and more susceptible to getting hurt. I say that I am forgiven for MY sins so who am I to judge? Sure, it may get me hurt once and awhile, but the pain is usually worth it. I love that I snort when I laugh reallyreally hard. I love that I will try any food once, before making an informed decision on whether or not I like it. I love the fact that I am very laid back and not extremely picky. This makes me easy to please. It's the little things in life. I love that I am financially responsible. I love that I love my friends and family unconditionally. Yes, we don't always see eye to eye, but in the end, I'd do anything for them. I love that I see the glass half full in almost all situations. I love that I am kind and generous and that I love to give so much more than receive. I love that I love my dog as if he were my child, with my whole heart. I love that I am a good listener and that I am very empathetic. I love my little "rabbit" birthmark. I love that I enjoy reading. I love that I rarely wear makeup and am okay with that. I love that helping others makes my heart swell with joy. All in all, I'd say I am pretty happy with the woman I have evolved into over the years, and am much looking forward to seeing the woman that I will continue to evolve into over the next few years. Rock on self! I love you! <3
