Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.Robin Williams (via seyttan)
It’s halfway through August and the end is approaching! We’ll be together again soon! Hopefully I’ve been doing well at basic. I want nothing more than to make you proud. I’ve probably dropped a little dead weight by now as well and hopefully added a little muscle. :) Keep pushing through! We’re almost done! I know it has been tough being apart but if we’ve made it this far, we can make it the rest of the way and be much better off for it. You’re stronger than you give yourself credit for so just keep pushing!
I bet your baby belly is getting pretty big now! And I’m sure the baby is kicking around a ton, just dying to be born and bless our lives more than we can even imagine. :)
I love you and I’ll see you soon!
(This is probably my last one of these. I’m just about to board my flight so this will be it unless I get more time to write. I hope these posts have brought you at least a little joy. If they made you smile even once, it was well worth the time. :D)
