A Letter to Myself

Dear Stephanie,

I know that things have been rough. Life has its ups and downs and it can often feel like it’s the end of the road. A massive dead end that leads to failure. But let me tell you something: That’s not true. That loud voice inside your head that says you aren’t enough is only your insecurities shouting at you.

It’s your anxiety taking a front seat and driving the bus, followed by depression where you forget to eat, and struggle to get out of bed in the morning. It’s feeling like getting dressed and walking the dog is an accomplishment, if it’s the only thing you’re able to do that day. The thoughts you have are loud worries that make you question yourself.

But you my love, are incredible. You are vivacious and full of life. You are loving, giving and driven. You have so much life left to live and I want to remember that even in tough times.

Sometimes it’s easy to speak from a place of optimism and positivity. When life seems to be going great, it’s pretty easy to say things are going well.

But the real test is when you face bumps in the road. These bumps feel sharp, rocky and make you question who you are as a person.

Keep going.

It isn’t over. You still have to keep fighting to get to the sunshine. But don’t give up. You’re a fighter and always face challenges head on. This will make you stronger even if right now you feel weak.

I want you to remember that you are love. You are loved.

You have so much to give to the world and there’s still so much of it left to see. So get up, get going and make your dreams come true.

I love you,
