from me to you

I think if we were all being honest with each other,
we'd admit that deep down we have a desire to be loved, to know we are enough.

Some of us would probably like to hear sweet things like I love you, I want you, I need you.
Some might prefer baubles and a fancy night out.
Still, others might choose a clean kitchen she didn't clean herself,
a long, hot bath without interruptions and a full night of sleep.
Or maybe all of the above.

We want someone else to recognize that we are talented and smart and attractive.
Someone to value our worth just as we are without us having to morph into a false version of ourselves.

So that's what I wanted to tell you today.
You are loved and valued and worthwhile.
Don't believe anyone who tries to tell you otherwise.

Now, if I were Oprah, I'd shower you with baubles aplenty and spa days for years and probably even a new car.
But I'm not, so I'll just end with this...

You are enough.

good communication is as stimulating as black coffee,

and just as hard to sleep after.
