A Letter To Myself

I stole this idea from Ashlee over at Makeup and Modifieds , ever since I read her letter to herself I knew I wanted to write myself a letter as well to read December 31,2016. I am sharing that letter with all of you.


Dear Jessica,

I hope you shined brighter than ever this year. 2015 was extremely rough emotionally for you, and I know you were going to focus on making 2016 that much better. This is your year to be FIERCE

This year is for YOU! It's ok to be a little selfish and take time to do the things you want to do and best of all, do them the way you want too. You have a big heart and sometime people take advantage of that. I hope you learned to say No when you get overwhelmed and know it is perfectly okay to say no to somethings. I hope your anxiety stays at ease now that you are learning to manage it.   

For the year, you set some goals and I hope you achieved every last one of them. Most importantly I hope you and Hubby focus on your relationship to build it that much stronger. I know this year will be a test of your relationship with his work but keep in mind that you are strong and you can do this! Remember what Dad always says "This too shall pass."

As far as the gym, I hope you kicked ass! You were just starting to love going and finally getting the hang of this macro counting thing. I really want you to love the process and build yourself. Share your love with the world so other women will LOVE the gym as much as you do! Also, you've noticed that more women need to LOVE themselves a lot more. 

Jessica, most of all, I hope you built memories to last a lifetime this year, I pray you laughed so hard it made your stomach hurt and you just enjoyed your life. No matter where you find yourself on December 31,2016 just know you are beautiful, strong and continue to be fierce.

    -Ashlee Michelle
