Letter to Self

18 Aug

Dear Self,

In the last 3 weeks you have reverted back to so many bad habits! I had honestly thought we were done with that bullshit! We were going so strong and you let doubt creep in. You let insecurities crawl in thru the cracks and you let them fester and grow. You let our procrasting and lazy ways back in the door. You let excuses blow our plan apart!

But worse than all that…you let the negative nellies turn into the beat-yourself-up brigade!!

This is NEVER acceptable!!

You have come along way!! No one ever said this journey was going to be easy. No one ever said this journey was going to be a straight path without bumps and twists and obstacles and backtracks and on and on.

But we keep moving!!
We keep going!!
We keep fighting!!

We deserve to care of ourselves!
We deserve to always feel good about ourselves!!

We never give up!!

Giving up is only any option if we are dead!!

So, its time to fight! Its time to …
Suck it up, buttercup!!

You have so much more life to live!!

Love always,

*disclaimer-pardon any typos – this post was thumb-typed while soaking in the bath! My back needed an epsom soak but my mind needed to write me a letter ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Dear Jen’s Self….

    Seriously back the eff off my girl and let her do what she was meant to do…

    Let her move forward.
    Let her make choices that feel good about herself.
    Let her get the confidence she deserves to get what she wants.
    Let her brush herself off.
    Let her take a deep breath
    Let her kick ass.
    Let her take names.

    Let her live…

    Isn’t it lovely that in this moment in time we care?
    I’ve been known – ahem – to be checked out at times…
    I’m grateful to check back in and care…
    Alas – to be human – the best it ever gets.

    I need to tell myself the same things. The last three weeks for me have been horrible.
    You can get back on track! You are rockin’!

    Soak that back…then pick yourself up and dust off the cobwebs and move forward! We will always have troubles but handling them in the right manner will determine who we are! Now if I can only remember this myself we will both be ok! hugs, girl! I’ve got your back!

    Good job, Jen. That’s it, turn it around. You can do it! We “just keep swimming”.
