My dear friends.
How was your year?
Mine was very trying.
But I came out of it smelling the sweet air!
I hope you did too.

I do get concerned, though,
how you will be doing over the holidays.
So here’s what I want you to do.

Follow your heart.
And repeat:
I am beautiful
I am intelligent
I am healthy in mind and body

When you get depressed
Keep repeating this until you feel better
or fall asleep.
And let’s have a great 2015!

I love you!
