When I look at you, I see a woman who is still struggling to figure out what she wants to do with her life. A woman who struggles with her weight, but still manages to look nice on most days, despite how she feels. I see a woman who is starting to get lines in her face, showing her age a little more. A woman who has learned many things in her short life so far. I see a woman who is now stronger, physically, than she has ever been.
When I look at you, I also see a little girl who desperately needs a little more love. Love she didn't receive when she was a child, and love that she didn't give to herself growing up. I want to give you a bath, wrap you up in a blanket, and tell you everything will be ok. You are gorgeous and you are loved. You are awesome and smart, you can really do almost anything. You are not selfish and you are worthy of everything that you have received.
So, from now on, Dear Reflection, I plan to give you a little more love each day. That little girl needs to hear it so that older lady can handle everything that is thrown at her.
With much love,
