Are we only meant to receive “Love Letters” from a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, or husband? This can be a Yes or No depending on the person you’re asking. As I strolled through my Instagram feed last week, I came across “Divasdodonate” page, that I follow. Their motivational message for that day was, “Write a Love Letter to Yourself”. Automatically, I was game and it’s a fantastic idea for me, you, and whomever to write a love letter to ourselves.
Your topic is you, so you have no excuse not to get started. Your Love Letter can be short, long and you can make this self-awareness a weekly, monthly, or a quarterly thing that you do. It will help you to see the real you and more appreciation for yourself. Be honest and forthcoming when you begin. Here goes my Love Letter!
I want you to know that I admire you for the woman, mom, sister, and friend you have become over the years. When I look at you, I see beauty, strength, energy, confidence, smart, and authenticity. You are an ambitious person who wants to showcase her best and bring others along for the journey. Shevon, you’re a true and loyal person who is always there to assist. I can depend on you to make me laugh, accomplish my goals, and stay motivated.
The love you have for your kids are amazing; you have taught them to enjoy life as kids, try new things, the importance of education, be resilient during tough times and to love each other and no their each other’s number one. They have a cool mom whom they can laugh and dance with at the spur of the moment anywhere. In addition, you’re the mom who has them in bed at 8 o’clock to have a good night sleep even though they may not want to.
Lastly, you have experienced a lot within the last year, traveled, met new people, grown, and initiated new adventures. I want you to continue exploring yourself, share that beautiful smile to everyone you encounter and be present for everyone and all situation.
OK, you’ve read my Love Letter, now it’s your turn. Grab your computer, phone, tablet, pen, paper and write your own Love Letter. Write what you feel; it will allow you to see yourself in a differently. You may laugh, cry who knows. What do you have to lose?
I smiled as I wrote my letter; it had me reflecting about everything that I have accomplished thus far and other opportunities for the future. Now go ahead, find a relaxed place and learn about you. Make sure to keep your thoughts on the positive side and enjoy.
