Dear Me

dear me one year from now,

well here you are. it's almost the end of 2013 and you're sitting in your little apartment watching the rain fall in florida. you're having one of those "i can't believe i live in florida moments" and watching law and order svu. typical sunday. can you believe it one year from now? i hope you come back, on december 30th of 2014 and read this letter. maybe you'll laugh, maybe you'll cry.

dear me one year from now, i hope you get your confidence back. i hope you do it by becoming the best you that you can be. i hope you it's not all "talk" this year. run like you're flying. go to the gym to get strong not skinny. i hope you finally tried cross fit and hot yoga and PR'd a half marathon. i hope you do even more than that and when you look in the mirror you smile and say "man, this is who i wanted to be". i hope you got healthy in every way possible. do it and don't give up. i hope you finally feel beautiful.

dear me one year from now, i hope you joined every little thing at work. every club, every volunteer event, every meeting. i hope you stayed positive, focused and determined. and i hope right now you have an idea, a contact and a dream of where your next move will be, and i hope you go for it. i hope every single day you still look at the sky and think "i can't believe i work for the walt disney company".

dear me one year from now, i hope you find your light again. i hope when you smile it is from the heart and you mean it. i hope you laugh from your gut, find new music, dance at concerts and find peace in new friends. go out there and make friends that are as close as family and lovers that kiss you deep. don't hole up in your apartment because it is safe and secure. i hope you ventured out and i hope you were brave.

dear me, your heart was broken. pretty bad, huh? i hope where you are now it doesn't sting anymore. i hope when your breathe in deep it doesn't feel like there are holes any more. i hope you finally have peace and comfort and closure. and i hope you finally realize it wasn't you at all.

and , if you're with someone again. i hope you are surrounded in love and trust. i hope he laughs as hard as you do, has nothing reserved and you know deep inside he means as well as you do. i hope he loves scooby and benny and gus, smiles as big as you do when you talk about your nieces and knows the happiness of eating popcorn and watching the fireworks on main st. and if he's not all of those things, move on. you don't deserve another minute of just average and you deserve someone who is the one.

dear me,

make peace with your past so it won't disturb your present.

what other people think of you is none of your business.

time heals everything, so give it time.

no one is in charge of your happiness, except you.

don't compare your life to others, you have no idea what their journey is about.

stop thinking so much, it's alright to not know the answers, they will come when you least expect it.

smile. you don't own all the problems in the world.

to 2014.

  1. I hope this new year brings you all the happiness in the world. I know 2013 included a lot of changes but you are strong and you made it through. You are so much more stronger that you think.

  2. i love this - make peace with your past so it won't disturb your present. - and i really hope you can look back next year and know you're in a better place.

  3. This is awesome. I hope your new year is everything you want it to be. Like I've told you before it keeps getting better. 2012 was the year I made some really scary choices that changed my life. I wanted to grow and be better in 2013 and you know what? I did it. I made my new little life for myself and Boomer and Jack, and we are all OK. You will be too. My theme for the year is Keep on Keepin on. So you do the same. You're on the right track!

  4. I know you will do each and every one of these things. I'm so excited to see what 2014 has in store for you!

  5. I think 2014 is going to be your best year yet. Keep your head up pretty girl. You already know your worth and that right there is half the battle. xoxo

  6. Love this! Find your light and let is SHINE. You got this.

  7. i love this! i know this year was tough for you with all the changes but you survived them and will continue to survive whatever life throws at you. here's hoping 2014 will be filled with awesomeness. chin-up, buttercup :)

  8. This and more. I hope that by the end of 2014, you come back here and write about your bravery and strength to pick up and follow your dream. You can do it. You will do it. You have lots of love surrounding you. Looking forward to following along. Happy New Year.

  9. What a beautiful post! I know 2013 was hard for you but I have faith that 2014 is going to be your year and big things are on your horizon!

  10. This is amazing, I totally needed to read this. I know you've had a tough year, here's to a 2014 full of happiness, growth & love :)

  11. To 2014! From the outside it sounds like you know all of the pieces that will make you whole again. I'm wishing for you to have a clean slate this year where you feel that all these things are possible. That and hope you believe in yourself, because you deserve to feel like the girl you're writing to in this letter. hugs!

  12. I love this so much! I'm sure when you look back on this, you'll smile.
