So, you know those pretty pink and red hearts that are starting to show up everywhere? Those are my gifts to you ~ with a little help from my decorating angels everywhere.
You see, there is so much love in this world, so much joy and gratitude that I wanted to make sure you noticed.
Have I told you lately? I LOVE YOU. All those hearts are meant for you.
You are my divine inspiration, the love of my eternal revolution, and I want you to not only know it, but to embrace this truth. To take it in… Body. Heart. And Soul.
I know you are busy. I know you are busy loving others, doing for others, being for others. And, that’s okay… it’s even better than all right. But, as I am your dearest friend, I want you to ALSO take the time and make the effort to love yourself.
You matter to me, but more importantly as your dearest friend, it’s my job to make certain you come to love yourself for who you are RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT. To remind you, that you are cherished, that you are loved, that you matter. Oh, my dearest darling, you matter so very much.
I, this world, would NOT be the same place without YOU in it.
Yes, you are that important. You don’t need to do anything or be anything.
You make that big of a difference in my universe simply because you are a part of it. A gloriously profound part of it.
And, I want to make certain not only that you KNOW this, but that you feel this same way about yourself. I can tell you until I have no breath left that I love you, that you make my world whole… but none of that matters if you don’t love yourself. There’s a very valid reason flight attendants direct you to put your oxygen mask on first in case of an emergency. You can’t help someone, if you’re suffocating, now can you?
So, the insane plethora of hearts and flowers and divine dark chocolates you see everywhere are to inspire you to take this opportunity to come to know yourself the way I do. To cherish yourself the way I cherish you. To know you matter, as deeply and beautifully, as you matter to me.
Some of you already get this. Some of you are ready to delete this email. I’m asking you not to. Instead, listen to what I am saying.
I love you because you are YOU.
I love you because of all the things you don’t love about yourself.
I love you in this current moment. I’ll love you in the next and the next….
I love you when you are laughing or crying or raging or so sad you can’t get out of bed.
I love you ~ and I will always love you ~ NO MATTER WHAT. And that is how I want you to feel about yourself.
So cry your ugly cry, laugh until you pee your pants, dance like there is no tomorrow, stay up late and watch the sun rise and be reborn…. Do all those things, live your life to the fullest, in whatever capacity that is for you.
Stop comparing. Stop complaining. Stop blaming and shaming and should of and would of and could of. And… just take a moment to be. Feel the love that is YOU.
And if you’re not ready to feel this way about yourself, that’s okay. Take a moment and let me in, feel the love I possess for you, that I hold… just for you.
It’s right here. Take it.
And if you’re still not ready… I’m not going anywhere.
All my love,
