"Dear Self" or "Dear Me" Letter Challenge
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
I've got a challenge for you if you are brave enough to try it.
Write yourself a "Dear Self" or "Dear Me" letter. Guidelines are 1. confess to yourself how you have treated yourself 2. confess how this made you feel 3. tell yourself what steps you will take to be a friend to yourself this year & 4. Put your letter somewhere you will read it frequently.
If you are really brave post to your blog or facebook notes so everyone has a chance to keep you accountable to those promises you made yourself.
Here is My DEAR ME LETTER.
I know I judge you harshly due to my perfectionist nature.
I know it makes you feel like you are incapable of accomplishing anything at times.
I promise to ease up and allow you some breathing room to not do everything perfectly or worse yet not start at all. I promise to encourage you to let loose, try new things, and even to fail as long as you have tried.
2011 is going to be a great year for us.
