While I was doing a little spring cleaning today, I found a few notes I made for myself. Some recipes, a list of chores my oldest did for me, some helpful tips, like look for electric dryers that have an extra heat setting. No mention of why this is important, but I thought it was at the time. Below the dryer note, I wrote the perfect note for today:

Words to Live By

This is how good I am today. I am better than I was yesterday, and I will be better tomorrow.

I really needed to see that message. I don’t remember writing it, but I can imagine that a few years ago I knew it was a valuable reminder I’d want to see again. Thank you, past dear self, for the reminder.
