I’m not a very overly confident person, so I have alot of negative thoughts about myself throughout the day, but writing a letter to myself outlining my rewards for nanowrimo at varying word counts, I surprised myself. I was suddenly using endearments such as love, and dear, because i know i work really well with positive enforcement. So why haven’t i learned to treat myself nicely.

I think at some point, we all need to realize that sometimes you need to put your needs first. You need to make yourself feel happy. I try to do that wen i can. I know when i move back home I probably am just going to lay on the grass at church or in someones backyard because i missed the air and all the free space, and no one will be able to stop me.
