This is an adapted version of a letter I felt compelled to write to another blogger, something tells me more of us need to hear these words:
This letter comes from one Sunny Mummy to another...
Don't try to be perfect, be perfectly YOU!
You have been given a precious gift...children who are watching your every move.
Show them you are BeautyFULL inside....once you have that, outer beauty quietly comes in and takes its permanent place.
Enjoy NOW, this wonderful age you are at. You didn't know much 5 years ago, you don't know much more now...
Neither do I.
Life is like that, please don't waste precious time trying to be perfect or worrying about stuff, physical and emotional.
Are you searching for something? Love, higher purpose, perhaps a job...
I wish you all the best. However, never forget you already have all of the above, being your children's Sunny Mummy.
Society can make you feel like that job is not enough, that somehow you should or could be doing more...
What could be more important than raising UP a child? Yes it gets tedious sometimes and is ever so tiring...
I am sure there are days when you wonder how you got here? That's OK. So do I.
Your life has taken this path and it is the right one for you....you will be able to do all the things you cant do now, soon, trust me.
You will appreciate it so much more, I promise.
Do what you love Sunnies, chase your dreams and keep being YOU, there is no-one else qualified for the role and to your babies, you are the only ONE.
Look after their mummy and remember you are already perfectly YOU, I think you are beautyfull inside and out.
Sending you sunshine and smiles always,
