I told my mom the other day that there is nothing that i like about myself. I told her that nothing is going my way in my life and I don’t think there is a single good thing about me that I see or believe.
Today, i came home from work to find this bunch of balloons, each one with two things that are unique and special about me and reasons why my mom and dad love me, coupled with a note that reads:
Dear Beautiful Kendra,
While you are learning to like yourself- and even to love yourself- maybe you can lean into just a few of the gazillions of reasons why you are likable and lovable to your countless fans.
You are a precious gift to your dad and me, and to so many others. One day i know you’ll see that too!
Love forever and always,
Mom a.k.a. Lois.
I started sobbing instantly, and I am still awestruck by their amazing care and love for me, and their wish for me to be happy and their encouragement.
I love my parents more than anything. I would be so lost without them.
This is beautiful.

If you plant honesty, You will reap trust

If you plant perseverance, You will reap victory
If you plant consideration, You will reap harmony
If you plant hard work, You will reap success
If you plant…

Walkin’ on $$
