My Dearest Elysia,
It has been a long time since I have sent you words of love and encouragement. How does time go by so quickly? I can’t even remember the last time I whispered positivity into your ears.
I know how much a loving whisper means to you. Yet, I find I have completely taken all that you do and are for granted. Worse than that, when I do give you any attention at all, it is in the form of criticism. I am so sorry…again.
How can one overlook your kindness towards others? Your empathy when a friend or loved one is hurting. How I love the way you celebrate with others’ successes. Elysia, you always seem to bring a smile to someone who needs it.
Your fun nature can put aside any difficult situation and gather contagious laughter. Remember when you told Satyam about your new Yoga style concept: Hot Flash Yoga! You got a laugh out of a serious guy!
Elysia, this past year you have suffered gastroparesis and pain severely. Yet you continued to suit up and show up for life.
So I guess, I did show you (Elysia/myself) a bit of love when I took care of my body. Maybe I just needed to be reminded that I truly love you, Elysia. Thank you for being the warrior queen you encourage your sisters to be in their lives!
Please never forget how much I love you, Elysia.
When was the last time you wrote yourself a love letter? Can you do so today? I would love to see what you come up with in your words to self.
Fall in Love with yourself this Valentine’s Day – And stay blissful my friends! – E
