♫ Dear Nomz...

I obviously cannot claim this as my brilliant idea. You see them everywhere.

A letter to me, to help remember who I am, and where I’ve been.

Dear Nomz,

Never be afraid to try something new. As much as you hate tomatoes, you love Bruschetta-all because you decided once to leave your meal fate to a waiter.

Your girls will always, always be your whole life-no matter who else chooses to come or go. You love your hair long, but look better with it right around your shoulders-in every shade you decide to try. You have great friends, horrible friends, and new friends coming. Don’t forget to love yourself first, but love others more.

Sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned. Sometimes, you think you found something great-only to realize it was all in your head. Remember that no matter how high on life you get, you’ve got to drop to reality to find its truth. Remember that day your first daughter stole your breath to take her first? NEVER forget that feeling-because when life is at its lowest-you’ll remember you’re fully capable of complete happiness.

Always love like you’ve never been hurt.

Try changing the world, from right where you are. Change, doesn’t require you to move. Running away only gives your problems a chance to gain momentum.

You love coffee. A lot. Stop trying to give it up-one cup, with the perfect amount of cream and sugar chases away your hate of mornings, and really doesn’t kill your diet. Also? Truly? You’re a bitch in the mornings. It’s not a great thing that you’ve learned to accept that.

Follow these lyrics whole heartedly: I will learn to let go what I cannot change. I will learn to forgive what I cannot change. I will learn to love what I cannot change. But I will change, I will change. Whatever I, whenever I can.

You have to sleep in the bed you make. You are going to make mistakes, you’re going to fall down. You’re going to get hurt, you’re going to feel abandoned. You will always have God.

Divorce isn’t the ultimate sin. You aren’t going to hell, because you made a mistake getting married for all the wrong reasons. Letting go of your past, opens new doors to your future. You were put with that person in your past to get the two best things that have ever happened to you. Never ever forget that you’re one hellova package deal. It’s not fair to be self conscious of what you’ve got, but instead be proud of it, and feel like it’s a treasure-one that you get to choose who to share it with. As of June 3rd four years ago, you will never put yourself first again-those girls define magical. No matter what anybody says, finding your happiness will not take you away from God’s love. Your daughters will not follow in your failures, but in your strengths.

Brandon is one of the best things that’s ever happened to you-he’s opened your eyes-you owe him for that.

It’s ok that you can’t decide on a favorite anything. Being an indecisive person has brought some huge opportunities in to your life. Keep it up.

Remember that how you treat others is your karma, and how they react is there’s. You can love others, but you do not possess them. You can assist, pray, and wish for them-but you cannot use any of those things to determine their paths or their happiness.

Hope is like a balloon-it always floats up.

I’m going to write you a lot of letters, because I plan on learning more tomorrow. Never stop reading-or writing-or learning.

Yours Truly,
