Letter to Myself...


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Dear Shannon,

Do NOT freak out. You had a bad month. What did you learn? I know you can do this. I know you can find time to workout. I believe in you.

This isn't forever, it's only right now. You have every single tool you need to change this. Don't you want to feel better about yourself? Don't you want more options of clothing to wear? I know you can't wait to get into pictures with your kids. They love you regardless but you know they are learning from you as well. Your children will become what you are.

You have done this in the past and had much success. You can do it now. Either do it or don't. It's do or die time. If not for yourself, for your kids. Time to end feeling miserable, time to stop dodging the mirrors. You are beautiful.

I love you. I believe in you and I know you cad do this.

To a much better week-

Love,
Me

    I just Love this.
I know for me I am so willing to encourage everyone else.
I am going to put this into practice.
Whenever I am stuck in anything in my life, I will write myself a letter and say to myself, what I would say to my best friend.
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Love It !

    Congrats on your featured blog post! I agree with you that I am on this journey not only for myself but to be examples for my children as well. Good for you for starting now while your kiddies are young. Mine are 14 and 18. But I am determined to be a healthy example no matter how old they are. adding you as a friend.

    Excellent and beautiful blog! With this attitude, you cannot fail. We need to help ourselves to learn new ways with the same loving kindness we'd show to our favorite child. You are a natural at creating an environment for positive change.
