Be Yourself


Dear You,

You are a child of God. You are unique and beautiful and full of promise. You have so many great things to accomplish in this life. Worrying about what others think of you can be crippling. Please don't let those worries dictate who you are.  Decide that you will not let silly words or made up ideas keep you from finding your dreams and being who you are meant to be.

You have been given a precious gift, the gift of agency. With that gift you can decide how you feel about yourself.  Do you really want to take that gift and hand it over to someone else? Especially someone who is mean, hurtful and doesn't even really know you at all?  Why would you let a person like that decide how YOU are going to feel about YOURSELF?  

Believe in yourself, and if you don't yet know how....rely on someone who KNOWS you and LOVES you to help you understand how spectacular you are, because you are SPECTACULAR!!! You are a bright shining star and I love you. I love all of the quirky little things about you.  Don't be afraid to be who you want to be.  

With all my heart..and then some, 
Me

  6. So true, and yet so easily forgotten sometimes!

    As mothers we look at our children, and we think their possibilities are endless.

    We think 'if only they can see themselves through my eyes'.

    I am sure Heavenly Father feels the same way, when we beat ourselves up with our words.

    'If only you can see what I see' he whispers to us.

    Hopefully the love He has for us, fortifies us against anything contrary to the truth: that we are daughters of a King.

    I can't help but think of all the Wemmick books by Max Lucado - a must in family library for children and adults ;)

  7. hi Andy-

    Love this. We each are unique and we should celebrate that quality in ourselves and each other.
