It has come to my attention that I have not spoke to you in months, and I feel like we need to take this time to catch up. It seems to me that you have grown by leaps and bounds, and NOT by gaining an ounce! A lot of letters, I have really layed into you, because you needed a swift kick in the rear, but I am impressed!
In the last six months you have learned to accept yourself for who you are today, and have begun to realize that tomorrow is just another day. You have realized you still have dreams that you want to persue! There are still new adventures that you want to now persue. The things you have accomplished in your life in the year 2009 are only a glimpse of what is to come in 2010.
I am so proud of you, because not only have you kept off the weight you lost in 2008, but you took off a few more and LOTS of inches this year. No one you know in your personal life can say that. Just about everyone who has began losing weight has either gained some back, or in most cases gave up completely. At times it felt lonely, and dark. Even a bit desolute. BUT... you realized in your own brain, in your mind, in your inner soul how destructive you once were ~ and how that kept you from being the free one you are now.
You are like a shining star, and it is with my honor that I say that. I can't wait to see what we accomplish TOGETHER in 2010. We need to have a conference this week, to discuss your goals ~ in all aspects of your life for the next six months. We don't need to discuss the entire year of 2010, beause well as 2009 has taught me about you ~ you can do anything you put your mind to, and you do better when you approach them in smaller steps. When it feels like your sitting in the dark, alone, and wondering why you are still doing what your doing, remember one thing. You do what you do, say what you say, to continue to live a life that inspires. YOU NATURALLY are an inspiration to many, whether you know it or not. Sometimes, you get a glimpse by their kind words, and responses, but .... I am willing to bet there are many more out there who say nothing, yet are becoming better people because of you.
I want you to embrace this season, just as you are. Excitedly expecting everything, and yet, needing nothing. Staying humbled, will allow you to see this time of year for what it truly is. A gift! A gift that money can't buy, and no one can replicate.
Merry Christmas! I look forward to our conference this week, spending time with you on Christmas, and ending a fantastic year by your side. You truly are someone I like to be with.
