A LETTER TO Self
Sometimes, we seem to forget that we need to love and support ourselves beyond all else. Today, that is not the case. From today forward, we will cherish ourselves, and praise ourselves for all that we have achieved, and encourage ourselves to reach the goals we have set for ourselves with this: a letter to YOURSELF.
“I am me in all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine. Because I alone chose it-I own everything about me. My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or to myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears.
I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By doing so I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts.
I know there are aspects that I do not know-but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and for ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded.
I can see, hear, feel, think, say and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me - I own me, and therefore I can engineer me. I am me and I am okay!”
