Dear Me:
Listen up, because I won’t always be around, and there are some very important things I need you to know before I wink out of time and into memory. Remember that everything I’ll be doing for the rest of my time here, I’m doing for you, your family, and the broad community that surrounds you. I want you to be strong and beautiful and confident, to keep building that shelf of dream packages I’ve been working on the last decade or so. I have always had writing and business skills, and so will you. You will do so much more than I can see or even imagine. I believe that, I really do. There’s no sense in my ever having been if I can’t count on you to BE. Likewise, don’t forget to remind the people you are close too, about how much you love them. How much we have always loved them.

But the most beautiful truth lies within it; that real love like that really exists, and that somewhere, someone loves you like that. And you love others like that, because I do, and well hot damn, that’s an amazing, wonderful thing about us. Remember that there are no failures, only incentives to do better with what you are and what you have. I often forget that I can be pretty awesome sometimes. But don’t YOU ever forget. We deserve, at the very least, to believe in each other. People always said I was strong, and I never saw it. Thought, in fact, that if I couldn't FEEL strong, especially when I needed it most, then how could I possibly be? But kid, we ARE strong. We’re not just survivors. We’re fighters. We don’t just survive the…
