If you read my last letter, just skip to the Love Letter below! If not, keep reading to know why you’re getting a love letter from me.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you won’t be surprised to know that I share things from my writing journals. Often times things that I’ve written to myself end up being something that reveals some truths. And truth is universal, so I end up sharing them with you.
That’s why I am sending you love letters! If you’re just now reading these, please know the others are on the site:
These are lifted from the letters I wrote to myself back in 2019. I had little to no objectivity on them at the time. They were just something I felt like doing, so I did.
I came across them today while sorting things in my office. As often happens when supposedly working, I ended up flopping in a chair reading.
And I found myself stirred by the letters and felt that they weren’t just written for me.
Love Letter 8
I want you to give yourself an EASY pass today. Forget to struggle. Embrace the giggle. Your heart does have wings on it.
Let it rise as high as it desires.
Don’t hold yourself back today. Do it all (the fun stuff). Have BIG ideas. Listen to music. Surround yourself with every little thing that brings delight. Photos, crystals, candles—the smell of the season. Do things for those you love—to make them feel special.
It’s not the the day to be practical.
Your life was, nor is, or will ever be about being PRACTICAL.
I’m telling you today to let your heart be its OUTRAGEOUS, glorious self.
For today, dear one, be yourself.
Within you there is a stillness and sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself.
~ Herman Hesse
P.S. Risky business. This thing of writing and sending it out. If I let fear stop me, you have no idea how many missives of mine would have never seen the light of day. I don’t get it right always—maybe only a very small percentage of the time. But I believe in following my heart which often seems to involve…taking chances. That is life. If this letter resonates with you, I’d love to hear from you—you can leave a comment just below.
P.P.S. You may be feeling inspired to do this for yourself. You know, get quiet and write a letter to YOU. It’s your higher self speaking to your regular old self. It knows so much more and finds it very easy to fall in love with …YOU!
