Back To The Future - A Letter To My 16 Year Old Self

Friday, January 25, 2013

Dear Leah,

I know that you think the biggest issue in your life is that number on the scale and that you haven't dated anyone yet. But know that you are a beautiful person, a wonder loyal loving friend and you have the most beautiful singing voice that will stop people right in their tracks.

I promise that your dreams will come true. You will fall in love and you will have kids but most of all you will get healthy. You will realize your dream of being a normal weight. Yes there will be ups and downs but during those times you will learn a lot about how strong you are.

I'm writing to tell you that you are lovable and beautiful. Don't let that stupid number on the scale affect your mood. Focus on the wonderful traits and talents that God has given you. Focus on what God says about you and not what you say about yourself.

Psalms 139: 13-16
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my motherís womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Leah - You will be happy on the inside and you won't have to fake it anymore.

From your happy, healthy, wife and mother of a girl and boy future you.
