My brilliant friend K8 invited me to participate in a cool project she started, called Dear Me - she's invited women to write letters to themselves at a younger age and is publishing a collection of them here.

Here in K8's words is a bit more about the project:

The more life experience I have, the more I feel that as women, we have a tendency to hold ourselves to some fairly ridiculous standards. We compare our worst selves to someone else's very best, we worry that we aren't good enough/smart enough/hot enough/accomplished enough. We minimize our good qualities and blow up the ones we are struggling with. But the wonderful thing is that when we open up and have the courage to be honest with each other about our fears and insecurities, we find that not only do other people feel the same way we do, the very act of encouraging each other usually pulls us right out of our own funk.

This project was such a great experience for me - it really made me stop and realize how blessed I am in this life and it helped me realize maybe I need to take it a little easier on myself. K8 is looking for new submissions, so if you think this is something you would enjoy doing, check out the instructions on the site - I know you'll be happy you did.

My aunt turned me on to this great song - it's happy melody and great messaged helped me get my letter finished.
