A love letter to me


"Love yourself first and everything else falls into place.  
You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."
Lucille Ball


Dear Jennifer-

I know I haven't told you this in a very long time, but I adore you.
You've been through a lot, yet you still try your best every damn day.
Your smile is contagious, and sometimes I can't stop giggling because you are so silly.

I love that you work hard to make your body strong to support your passionate personality.  You make (mostly) healthy choices to support the vessel  that you live in.  You are so fucking tough mentally, and you are brave enough to call people out on their bullshit.

Because you love simple things like flowers and candles, warm blankets and showers,  coffee and wine. Because you'd rather spend a day in the woods than in the mall.  Because you feel most alive in cold air and warm water.  Because your weakness is exquisite food and romance.  Because you love to play!

Because your loved ones mean the world to you and you truly care about your friends and clients.  Because you continue to try to better yourself.
Because "good enough" never is.
Because you answer that text at 5 in the morning, and that email at 10:00  at night (even though you are already half asleep).
You pay your own bills, and have learned to make sacrifices.
Because you are beautiful.  Your brown eyes sparkle with happiness,  your body reflects your hard work, and your soul dances with life.

Because you appreciate today.  You believe that love truly is the answer and that peace is possible.
You know you've made mistakes, but that there are lessons to be learned in this life.  You are real.  You are love.  You are fearless.  You are infinite.

Girl- I am so lucky to have you, and I am so in love with you.
Keep being amazing.
