A Love Letter to Myself From… Myself

Dear Self,

Today I want you to look at yourself in the mirror and repeat what Muhammad Ali once said about himself: “I'm not the greatest; I'm the double greatest.”

Today I want you to pull out one of those pairs of “fat pants” lying dormant on the top shelf of your closet and try ‘em on in remembrance of the not-so-good ol’ days.

Today I want you to take a moment during your workout (you are working out today, right?) and say grace for the fact that you CAN work out today.

Today I want you to go leave some comments on other bloggers’ posts to repay all the fantastic comments you’ve been blessed with right here.

And today I’d like you recognize that you can love and appreciate yourself just the way you are and still strive to bring about positive and healthy change in your life.

Albert Einstein once said, “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”

I’d like you to say, “Amen to that.”
