This has been singing through my mind like my new favorite song all week.
The person who sent this is busy. I mean, BUSY. And 3,000 miles away.
And one of those people who I look up to in so many ways, someone I admire.
And it was so unexpected, it nearly knocked me over.
Sometimes, the people in my life will say something like this. Startling me.
Causing me to stop and focus and remember that I am more than how I see myself.
That I am more than my insecurities, more than my self-doubts, more than the messy ponytail and t-shirt.
These people are the mirrors in our lives, reflecting back to us who we are, how we are.
They're the people that see us - I mean, really see us - clearly, helping us to see ourselves, too.
And I sure am grateful for them.
