It’s a pleasure writing to you, my inspiration came from my friend Corinne, who shared her love letter on her blog, Everyday Gyaan - thanks to her for she has motivated me to write a love letter to myself. I have been planning to begin a self esteem file for myself, and ask a few of my friends to write a tribute for me, while I am still in the process of learning to appreciate myself, I found her love letter, which I enjoyed reading.
I have never attempted to write you, today I dare to let you know that I have begun to enjoy your company, and I find you very interesting, I marvel at the way you have handled so much of pressure and problems in your life, and you are still so happy and motivated to live meaningfully.
There has been too many challenges especially in the last year, when you made a decision to quit working full time work in order to respond to your hearts call, exploring ways of living to make your life happy and meaningful.
I am happy that you gave yourself a chance to do what you want to and took a risk to explore opportunities wherein you could share your skills, and at the same time find fulfillment in what you did, I think it was a daring step, and you worked so much on your mind in planning, discussing and sharing with your close friends, listening to your heart revisiting your goals which you had been regularly setting for yourself.
I know that it has been tough for you to fulfill all the plans that you had evolved for yourself, but I loved the way, you let go of things and just went with the flow believing in yourself and trusting God to lead you and guide you to the right place at the right moment of your life.
Today when I look at all the choices you have made, and continue to make, there is a more of peace and less of regrets, otherwise, I know how you used to worry about small things and would like to have everything worked out for you - a ready made plan for your life, which you would want to share with few close friends, and keep thinking of it again and again, till you are convinced that you are on the right track.
All your experiences have made you a very grateful person; you have been eager to learn and opened yourself to new experiences in life, and I am glad that you are moving despite setbacks and limitations; you have also surrounded yourself with friends and books that are motivating and bring in a lot of insights.
Keep smiling my friend, relax, all the very best for whatever you desire to achieve, everything is working well with you,
