Today I hope you feel beautiful. I hope you like your face. I hope you are happy with the way you’ve treated others. I hope that someone was nice to you today…and if they weren’t, I hope that they get a good dose of karma. I hope somebody tells you that you’re sweet or nice or kind or thoughtful or beautiful. I hope you feel smart today because you knew something that nobody else knew. I hope you got final Jeopardy right, but if you didn’t than neither did the contestants – like it was impossibly hard and Alex Trebek didn’t act smug about everyone not knowing the answer. I hope you laughed today – hard – so hard you cussed. I hope you saw something today that made you question something you take for granted, but then you realized that you are so amazingly thankful for what you have. I hope someone thanked you today, especially for something that you didn’t even think was really worthy of gratitude. I hope that if you are grieving, you are less sad today than you were yesterday. I hope you sang a song very loudly today – embarrassingly loudly. I hope someone thought of you today.
If at least one of those things applies to you, I feel like my work here is done.
