I love you! I love you! I love you! I love you! I love you! You are wanted! You are needed! You are loved! You are important! You are beautiful! You are special and precious and amazing!
At 5 years old I was timid and shy. I was timid and shy most of my life. If I could tell myself anything, I would tell myself every day how wonderful I am. I would remind myself that not only am I am beautiful on the outside, I am beautiful on the inside too! I would let myself know that it's ok to make mistakes. I would say, mistakes happen, that they are part of life and nothing to get myself worried about or be afraid! I would remind myself that in life their is truly nothing to be afraid of because once we let those fears in we stop growing. Growth is essential every single day!
I would tell myself, Do Not Be Afraid of anyone of anything. I would tell myself it's fun trying new things and learning from mistakes and being honest are the keys you need for the rest of your life. I would let make myself laugh out loud, every single day! I would tell myself to be kind to myself because no one else's opinion truly matters other than my own. I would tell myself to do more, have more fun! I would remind myself to tell those around me, how much I love them and how much they matter to me. I would tell myself to hug those I love with all the exuberance in the world. I would let myself know, it's ok not to be strong every single day and to ask for help when it's needed and to confide in those I trusted.
I would give myself a great big exuberant hug and remind myself again and again I am loved!
