If you haven’t taken a look at Shutter Sisters, I hope you do. With Valentine’s Day upon us, they have encouraged their readers to write a love note. But not just any love note. A love note to yourself. What a wonderful idea! Don’t we all need to be a little more gentle with ourselves? A little less hard on ourselves?
I think this is a great idea, but when I was rolling it around in my mind, I kept coming back to the one part of my life where I doubt myself the most … the place where I need the most encouragement. And that’s being a mom. I second-guess. I make myself feel guilty. I stress about messing up. So I decided that I’m going to give myself a pass, at least for one day. I’m looking at my growing babies and I’m seeing two sweet, kind-hearted, funny kids. I think I’m doing this right.
My love note … to myself …
