As one of our assignments in our BLC challenge, we have been asked to write a love letter to ourselves. I must admit that blogging is not my forte, but this is my best effort.
I was looking in the mirror at you and I have to tell you how proud I am of your effort and commitment to be healthy and set a good example for your family. Your hard work has really started to show. I see curves, and arm muscles, and my goodness, where did your tushie go?
Then I looked a little closer, and started to see the things that have always been there, but that you have not always noticed - your wonderfully curly hair that has very few greys, your cat-shaped hazel eyes that change from blue to green depending on your wardrobe for the day, your beautfully long and slender fingers that your mother always called piano player fingers (even though you never played), your smile that should grace your face more often, for when it does it lights up your whole face.
Then finally I looked even deeper to the to see the you inside. I saw a loyal friend and loving mother. I saw a woman who likes order and trying to solve problems. I saw how much you love to sing, even though it scares you to do it in front of others. I saw a woman who is not afraid to let out her inner child once and awhile. I saw someone who is constantly trying to grow in all aspects of her life - physically, mentally and spiritually.
My dear Dulcinea, you are a wonderfully complex woman and I hope that you are learning to love every part of yourself!
