Love Letters

Could you write yourself a love letter?  Reading a letter from someone else expressing love to you is a wonderful experience, but there is nothing quite like being wholly accepted, acknowledged, and loved by yourself.  Being a good friend starts at home; acting and speaking like a good friend to yourself is great practice at how to be a good friend to others.  As cheesy as the premise of the following SoulPancake video may seem, I love the idea of writing a love letter to your very own self.  An awesome byproduct of hearing these people’s love letters to themselves was that I ended up loving them too.

I am so thankful for this video by SoulPancake.  My wonderful cousins are going back home to New Jersey tomorrow, after visiting us here in Chicago.  And although I am already missing them, I can’t help but smile when watching this:
