Love Letter To Myself

IMG_9814 2.JPG

dear me,

My love, you are a work of art.

You have shattered but you have not been broken.

Gathering the strongest of the remains, you have pieced yourself back together time and time again.

You have solidified the pieces with love and melded it together with the strength from inside you.

And for that, you are an amazing human being.

Becoming more beautiful with each break, you have proved to yourself the power of your faith.

Even in the times when you no longer wanted to remain in this world, your faith could not be suppressed.

It rose from within you like a burning light and showed you the way out of your darkness.

You became your own savior and I cannot think of a more powerful thing in this world.

“You are capable.

You are brave.

You are significant.

Even when it feels like you’re not.”

I know you doubt yourself more than you would like to admit.

But I want to remind you of the journey that has led you to this very point, and because you are still here, there is is no need for doubt.

While I know you have always struggled with the idea of beauty and self-image, I want to let you know that you are beautiful because of everything you are and everything you are not.

You smile with your eyes.

Your laughter is contagious.

You shine the brightest when you give love.

And because of who you are, you give it every day.

You love so wholeheartedly.

You treat everyone with open arms.

You think of your friends as family.

And you care so much about everything which seems like an awful quality at times but I assure you it’s a great asset.

You radiate love.

You embody love.

You give love.

So even when on the days when you can’t feel it, love is coming to you.

The energy you give out will be the energy you give back.

“You are not only interesting, but original, not only good enough, but exceptional—not just here, but here for a purpose”

You are so much brighter than you will ever see.

You are so much greater than you will ever know.

You are so much more loved than you will ever understand.

And I love you for all of it.
