I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what to write for this one. I’ve focused on how inspiring you are, how you don’t give yourself enough credit, your overwhelming talent and how beautiful you are. I know you’ve not read them, or if you have, then you’ve kept quiet about it. I know that my writing isn’t great and I can never get my point across properly, because I’m rubbish with emotions. I wanted to write you these so that you knew someone is on your side. That there is always someone here who loves you unconditionally and will always have your back. But deep down, I know that I’m not your blood, and honestly, I’m probably just in your way most of the time.
Okay, so you KNEW this one was coming. How could I not talk about your talent?! You’ve got more talent in your little finger, than most people I know put together. You ace your fucking job, every single time, you can sing (yes, yes you can), you nail being a mum, you have a talent for being able to cheer anyone up; no matter what’s wrong. AND - and this could be the most important - your Pesto Pasta is the best I’ve ever tasted. True story.
So, here we are. My second letter, not that you’ve probably even read the first one. I know you’re busy and have a lot on, so reading this is probably very low on your to-do list. But anyway, here we are with the second one regardless. Clearly the first one didn’t work, because you’re still insulting yourself about the way you look (which is pissing me off, but I know that’s not going to change over-night). So, what to tackle this time? There is always so much that I want to say to you, but when I write, my mind goes blank. That’s probably a huge reflection of my anxiety and not liking the whole ‘share feelings’ thing. But I shall push through my own shit, and rant about how incredibly inspirational you are.
Earlier this year, I wrote my Mama a letter. I miss letters. I think they’re a skill that we are losing, and I think that’s sad. Letters are personal and let you say things that you can’t in a text, or even over the phone. My Mama is the most beautiful woman I know and she’s amazing, but she has no self-confidence and doesn’t realise how wonderful she really is. So, I’m writing this open letter, so the world has access to seeing just how much she means to me.
Sometimes in life, people will say something that will make you stop and think. These are my favourites, that I've heard over the years. I've pondered them all quite a lot.
Ahh. Crazy Ex Girlfriend. The beautiful, wonderful, glorious show, that you cannot help but binge watch. time and time again. I think I've watched and re-watched the whole series about seven times now - not bad for someone who wasn't sure whether to watch it or not.
