Note to Self


Dear Kelly,

I know you are tired after your first day back to working full time and your first day ever working in Corporate America, but please don’t forget your dreams. Oh, maybe forget is the wrong word. Just don’t let them stay only dreams. Breathe life into them; nurture them; let them grow.

Fight the tired, Kelly. Fight the tired.

And while you’re at it, fight the self doubt and the mom guilt and the naysayers and anything else that gets in your way.

Easier said than done, I know.

We’ve been together a long time you and me. And I know I don’t tell you often enough, but you’re worth it, Kelly. You do deserve it.

You spend too much time listening to the Kelly over your shoulder instead of me, the one in your heart. You’re pretty tough on me, I’ve gotta say. But still, I’m here. And I’m stickin’ around.

Yes, you’ve got some work to do. No, it won’t be easy. But it does not mean you can’t do it.

Because you can.

Now go get some rest and gear up for tomorrow.

And call me if you need me.
