Day 438 ~ #30... of My 30 Days of Truth...

My 30 Days of Truth challenge   I will admit that I changed one question and changed a few curse words... other than that the challenge is intact. 

Day 30: A letter to yourself... tell yourself everything you love about yourself...

Dear Self...
Wow! Where to start?...  
We've been through so much...  we've seen so much... sharing so much along the way.  
I am so proud of you for hanging in there time after time, and for never looking the other way.  
I am so proud of your inner strength, as I am proud of your weaknesses.  I am proud of your constant desire to help others as well.  
I am proud of how you've faced adversary, worked your way around obstacles and how you've fought through all the tribulations in your life... I am even proud of how you have picked yourself up after every negative situation that was thrown at you... and never being afraid of admitting your faults.  
Most importantly I am so proud for your sincere desire to better yourself each day... your desire to be the person your children and husband would always be proud of... as well as your desire to always do the right thing.  
Keep up the great work... never taking your eyes off the prize.  {and} whatever you do... don't ever forget about the big picture.  
With much love...  
Your self.         

With God's grace.
Whoever gets sense loves his own soul; he who keeps understanding will discover good.  ~Proverbs 19-8
Where I've been and where I'm going next...

Day 24 : Make a playlist for someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 : The reason you believe you’re still alive today.

Day 27 : What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 : Name a decision you made that caused a chain of events that would not have happened if it wasn't for that decision.

I think this particular exercise would be a very difficult one to do...

You made it look easy. Love it, love it, love it!

Carla I love this post. I am going to have to use this idea for day 30. I wrote a poem once with the sentence "a woman just needs to take time to look in the mirror and love who she sees" (something like that), but I think a good idea is also a love letter to yourself. Thank you for the inspiration. I am proud of myself for so many things but I fail to recognize myself - you know what I mean?

Wow! In today's world it's amazing how quickly people can point out their own faults and how hard it is to appreciate themselves. I admire your posting this letter to self
