Today is my 26th birthday.
I know it’s going to be a good year, and I am so thankful for everything I have.
I have come so far.
B gave me this card for my birthday. I wanted to share it with you. I think sometimes cards have such great messages! (Wouldn’t it be fun to be the person who writes them for their job?)
I want everyone to know that you all deserve to say this to yourself!
You are loved…
Just the way you are
Regardless of what you do or don’t do
past, present, and future
no matter what mistakes you make
even on your not-so-good days
whatever you choose
with all your unique qualities
simply because you’re you!
What I’m up to today:
- Ralph is being a big brat! He got comfortable here and is now a little bit of a rascal. Typical puppy!
- I want to finish my short story, and go back to my Eva story again too.
Also, in honor of my birthday, I wanted to do a survey about MOI! 😉
