well... it's my birthday too, yeah

...today is my birthday....
will you do something for me today? -consider it a gift to me that you do this.
Even though you may feel silly, or awkward doing it, please do it for me.
Ready? ...here it is:

today I want you to go look at yourself in the mirror
[preferably a full length one.... really look at yourself -for like 3 minutes]
oh... & this part is for the girls mostly,
don't just look at what's "too big or too small"
don't listen to the voices
that say your nothing at all
& realize.....
you are priceless.
you are a gift. you are a work of art, masterfully carved by The Artist.

love,
B

Thanks nAncY, please do. [btw... I should tell you, Nancy is my mother's name as well. So when you comment I smile.]

Thanks gals. I had ups & downs a bit all weekend. maybe I'll post about my weekend....

Thanks L.L. it's easier to tell someone else than to think of it for myself.
