I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter


When February gets you down, write yourself a note of encouragement, and stash it someplace where you’ll run across it, like your Jobsearch folder.  Then you’ll find it at some future needed time and you’ll be lifted up, like I was today.


Dear Self;

            I celebrate you. I cherish you.  You have triumphed.  You have failed.  You have walked the walk.  You have stayed til after closing, you have arrived early,  you have gone to the right place at the right time, and the wrong place at the wrong time.  You have slept late, but mostly gotten up early.  There are lots of new ideas in you, and lots of old ones ripe and ready for action.

            Dear self,  I would be you given the chance, all over again in a heart beat.

Dear self,  don’t give up or give in.  Do take care and stretch and grow. 

            Be patient self. Be brave self.  Go for it where you see opportunity.  Don’t forget that dream you want to live.  You want to live!  and you are alive.  What could be more blessed?



Love, Sarah
