This week in the BLC Challenge we are to write a meaningful love letter to ourselves. I think one of the greatest examples of this is from John Wooden to his wife Nellie.
Quoting from the picture
In one of the sweetest love letter stories of all time, this famed basketball coach continued to write his wife of 53 years, Nellie, love letters even after her death. On the 21st of every month he would visit her grave, write a letter and place it on a stack of similar letters that accumulated over the years. According to ESPN, no one got to see these lovely notes, not even his family.
For me, I think it is the connections with others we make in life that sustain us and help make us who we are and let us see ourselves in the best possible light.
