Letters from my Sister

Letters from my Sister

pep talk

Noun
A talk intended to make someone feel more courageous or enthusiastic

I would like to share a letter from my sister. Dated  May 23rd 2013….this is what she had to say:

You’re not crazy or ugly. You’re quite the opposite. You’re beautiful.

The psychic did not curse you. She sounds like a complete maniac and to believe her would mean you’re insane, too … which you’re not! No one has the power to do something like that to another person. NO ONE.

You need to remember what you tell me about self-love. I really think you should listen to the Conversation. Listen to the Lady Gaga one. It’s only about 15 minutes. http://vimeo.com/41433603

And, you are a very VERY beautiful person.  I’ve been trying (trying being key word) to focus less on worrying about my looks and more about worrying about my brain and relationships. I worry a stupid amount about wrinkles, but the fact is, they’re coming, and I’m not going to be able to stop them, and there is always going to be someone out there who is more beautiful in the objective sense than me. I need to focus on things that will bring me true joy and feelings of accomplishment, which is being healthy, becoming an author, getting The Daily Saint off the ground and causing a big impact, and maintaining and fostering the relationships of the most important people in my life. Actually, I got to really putting that in the front of my brain when I listened to the Conversation with Portia de Rossi (she’s after Lady Gaga on the video … watch that one, too).

IN CONCLUSION, No, you’re not ugly or crazy. You are beautiful and sane and loving and wonderful. 🙂
