I think you’re pretty rad. Go you. You’ve come a long way from that bitter, victimized version of yourself three years ago. And I know you know you still have so much more to go. But honestly, good for you. You’ve stood your ground. You’ve believed in yourself. You trusted your gut. You shifted your perspective. You’ve changed your diet, your bad habits, your attitude. All voluntarily, too. You did it because you wanted it. You recognized the areas of your life that were unfulfilling and did something about it. You faced all of your biggest fears. Trauma, heartbreak, stress. You learned that you really don’t have any control over the things that happen in your life, and that the only thing you can control is your attitude and reaction. That’s not easy to do, but somehow, you’ve managed. You came out of all of this a different person. A better version of yourself. And you will continue to grow and evolve because of all of this and everything else that happens.
If there’s anyone who’s proud of you, it’s me. Yourself. I’m proud of you. I’m proud of me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen you so happy to be you before. That’s a wonderful thing. Everyday you accept pieces of you that you once deemed unacceptable. Everyday you do at least one thing that will bring you personal happiness. Your put yourself ahead of others in a way that does not make you selfish. It’s the oxygen mask method. You’ve learned to put yours on first, then help the others around you put theirs on. It’s just nice to see you truly take care of yourself, both mentally and physically, or at least put the effort in rather than stand around waiting for lightning to strike you.
Keep up the good work.

Life is so damn short, for fucks sake, just do what makes you happy.
Compliment people. Magnify their strengths, not their weaknesses.
Not everyone is going to want, accept, or know how to receive your energy. Make peace with it and move on.
Kindness. It doesn’t cost a damn thing. Sprinkle that shit everywhere.
Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry. Trust the process.
Spend more time making yourself a better person and less time worrying about what everyone else is doing.
Find a way, not an excuse.
Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs, and you do not have to endure this from others either.
We are not our failures.
You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.
The more you close yourself the unhappier you’ll be. You’re not alone, open up to people.
People come and people go. That’s the way the world goes. Live and learn, don’t live and regret. The best is yet to come. Look forward.
When you lose yourself in what you love, you find yourself in what you are.
Forget everything you’ve been told and open your mind.
Forgiveness is the greatest indicator of strength. Admit when you’re wrong, but if someone makes you feel like shit for the mistake, move on. Similarly, when someone makes a mistake, be good enough to understand why they did. You don’t attack people because of a mistake. People learn.

I didn’t like my body. So I changed my diet.
I didn’t like my job. So I found a new one and quit.
I didn’t like where I lived. So I moved.
I didn’t like the person I was. So I changed her.
I needed help. So I asked for it.
I have gone through many changes throughout my life, and I will continue to fight all of my own demons. But it’s only because I stopped being afraid of asking for help. I stopped being afraid of taking risks. I stropped being afraid of letting go.

I’m so fat. I think I’ll always be. That’s okay, though. As long as I get good grades.
Speaking of grades, where is my report card? I need to know if I failed that science class.
I’m all of a sudden falling asleep so if there are typos, I’m sorry. If I don’t make sense, I”m sorry. It’s what happens. I nee d to make a new cd. I’m typing with my eyes closed. I fall asleep in chair.
I waste money on food that’s fat for jessie. Jessies fat for food and my back hurts. Everything I’m wearing is the color shit green. That’sa lright with me. I could write a po=em. I had a dream I was FBI.
I’m nuts when I’m sleep. Embarassing. My eyes re still closed. Shrek4 comes out in 2013. Will the world even still be a life? I thought Jesus was coming soon. Maybe he’ll have the decensy to let everyone see Shrek 4 first. How do you spell decent sea when you’re asleep?”
This old blog of mine has me dying. I was so depressed and self-deprecating.

The best thing you can do for yourself, and everyone else around you, is to be the bigger person.
Always give someone the benefit of the doubt. There is a reason and explanation for everything. There is a struggle in every life. Everyone has insecurities and many people project them onto others. It is hardly ever done with ill intentions or even awareness. It doesn’t matter what they’ve done to you. It doesn’t matter how much they may have hurt you. They are more than likely hurting, too. Possibly because of you. Possibly because of some deep-seeded mentality derived as a result of their upbringing.
Letting go is as simple as letting go.
Only you make it out to be as difficult as you think it is. You can choose to hold onto a resentment that will do nothing but poison your mind and day to day life, or you can choose to take a deep breath, let go, and move forward. Is this something that will bother you 1 year from now? 6 months? 3 months? Trust me, it will bring you more peace than it will bring anyone else.
This is a letter to myself as much as it is to whoever is reading it right now.
