30 Days of Truth: Day Thirty: Positivity

Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself .

Dear Dawn,

I know it has been a rough couple of weeks months years, but you are strong. Probably stronger than you have ever been. You have grown from your struggles and even though you are not quite healed from all of them, you are making progress.

You look great! ... and you are finally getting used to having self-confidence to go along with that body you have been working for all these years.

You are an awesome mom. This is reflective every time someone compliments your children for their behavior and their ability to make smart decisions. This is the most important job anyone could ever have and you are excelling at it.

You are a great teacher. Even though this year has been full of hard times, you do make a difference in your students' lives. You know you do. Don't ever cut yourself short. Remind yourself of the compliment that was paid to you the other day... "Kids....'Those' kids, aren't the same when they leave your room. Don't give up. Do what you do. They come out on the other side better for it."

You made it! You wrote 30 days worth of truths. Some were easy... Most were painfully hard. But, you grew. You suffered some, but you grew. Growing is hard. Leaving the painful past behind is hard. Moving forward is hard. But you are doing it. Slowly. So very slowly, you are doing it.

Always remember... Too much sunshine makes a desert.... and you don't want too much rain ...

Keep thinking positively.
You can do it!
You will make it.
