Peaceful right?

Dear FutureMe,
Hey girl! In my journal today I was challenged to write a letter to my future self describing things that I HOPE to not worry about in the future and what I am proud of right now. So here goes!

I hope you aren't still worried about your weight all the time. I hope you realize that honoring your body and being true to yourself is the most beautiful thing there is.

I'm proud that you have finally started respecting yourself enough to realize you're more than what your tummy looks like. I hope you continue to grow in this area so you can pass on the self love to others around you.

I hope you stop worrying Bout being a good enough mom. I hope you can rest in the fact that you have done absolutely everything in your power to make your children feel safe and loved and accepted no matter what.

I'm proud that you've slowly been letting Pinterest's expectations of motherhood go... that you're finally starting to realize that your motherhood is a journey and it's not going to look like everyone else's.

I hope you've stopped trying to do it all and make everything perfect... I hope you stop to take more breaths and to look around at the beautiful life you're a part of.

I'm proud that you have really started living to be true to yourself and your own convictions. I'm so excited to see where you go!
