A Self-Love Note in July

Hello again dearest readers,

It has been a month since I have posted last. I would like to say it is because I have been so busy with other things (such as writing up a storm on one of my manuscripts) but that would not be the truth.

One thing I have discovered which has occupied a lot of my time is… Korean Dramas! And my oh my am I hooked! Someone mentioned to me that it is my latest guilty pleasure to which I responded, “There is no guilt here!”

How have you all been?

What has July brought your way?

Anything you are obsessed with?

Perhaps feeling a little guilty about?

Tell me. I would love to know!

Wow, did I get sidetracked there for a moment. Let’s get back to the task at hand, a self-love note to myself.

Here goes:

Dear Me,

Something exciting is coming your
way this week.
But with that sweetness comes sadness.
It is okay to mourn the lost times, but
let's do our best to hold onto the moments
and enjoy them as they come.
Love the present.
Worrying about leaving before you even
get there will only bruise your heart.
Let the feelings come as your drive
away, knowing it is not the very last
It is not a goodbye.
It is a see you soon.


Phew that was a bit tricky to write in all honesty. I sat with my fingers hovering over the keys not quite sure what I wanted to say to myself. Unsure how to discuss this subject with myself.

I often worry about going places. And occasionally I am excited to reach a destination but before I even get there the feelings of leaving rush in. Trying to tell myself it is okay is difficult. But being kind to myself is my goal.

Hoping you all have a great rest of your Sunday and last week of July.

Postscript: Have you been reading anything great lately? I have been on a historical romance kick!
