Hi! It’s Me!

This is my second weekly contribution for Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday that she hosts on her blog, Magic in the Backyard. Her Free Write Friday is being done in conjunction with another blogger, Hannah Katy , and her blog, The World Needs More Love Letters.

I hope you will take the time to check out both terrific websites.

Hi! It’s Me



It’s me!

I hardly know how to begin, but I guess I’ll just blurt it right out – I Love You!

There, I said it, now the rest should come easy.

I know you wonder what it is I could possibly love about you; how I could love you at all, but, see, that’s where you’re really missing the boat. Instead of wondering how I could, you should be wondering why everyone else doesn’t.

You want my opinion? You’re not being you. Yep. It’s that simple. How can anyone love you if you’re trying to look and act like somebody else?

You’re a good person, right? And you’re a good-looking person. Okay, so you’re not movie star, drop-dead, gorgeous. Who is? They all have their flaws.

But here’s my point: I heard somewhere that you have to love yourself before anyone else can love you, and I think it’s true. I think if you dwell on your faults, that’s what you’ll be. Think on the good things! Pick out the best parts of you and throw them at the world! Here I am!

That’s all. Just wanted you to know how I felt.


Me (You)
