Dear Krysten,

As a virgo, you know every single little thing that is wrong with yourself.  You are your own worst critic and while that sometimes can be a good thing it can also be a bad thing.

You are a perfectionist.  You are a hard worker.  You are a good and loyal friend. You stand up for your family and friends, you do your best to help others when you can offer help and you take time out to do the things you love and enjoy doing.

I know that you look back on the past and see mistakes that you've made and wish that you could change them.  I know that at times you feel weighed down and worried and wish things were different.  Heck, I know I'm supposed to be writing this letter about the the things I love about myself and it's really not going that way is it?

Get over it.  Life is short.  Stop living in the past.  Stop worrying about the future.  Don't keep second guessing and fretting over the things that can't be changed.  Instead take one day at a time and for one live.  Maybe the money problem will never go away.  Maybe certain people will never come back into your life.  Maybe nothing will turn out the way you thought it would.  But in those mistakes come new adventures.  And if you're busy worrying which path to take you're going to miss out.

Get a life.

Wow! Can't belive it's been 30 weeks since you started thise series already! Time sure does fly...

Exited to see what you will fill your Sundays with from now on :)

Kristi

Nice letter, I think it would be hard to write to myself, maybe I should give it a try sometime

Stephany

Absolutely love the send-off to this letter. :)

I don't think I'm too focused on living in the past, but I am a worrywart about the here and now. While I think I *do* live in the present, I can get too fixed on worrying about what lies ahead for me rather than just focusing on what's important right now. That's hard to do!

Audrey Allure

Nice letter, I definitely worry a lot too. lol Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Cafe Fashionista

I'm a virgo too, and struggle with some of these things too - like wanting things to be perfect. I've realised the sometimes I just need to let go! x

Dear Miranda,

Read Krysten's letter. Apply it to you. You're also a Virgo and do the same crap.

PS. Thank Krysten for reminding you of this!

Kristin H

Virgo myself...and yes to being a perfectionst!!

gringationcancun

Great letter :) I worry a lot about past mistakes as well, but I'm slowly learning to move past that.

Charlotte

I'm actually writing myself a similar letter, oddly enough. We can't always help the way we feel when things don't go the way we had planned them and I hope you're really not being so hard on yourself.

Many of us don't have it all figured out until later on anyway. But surrender to the thought that you are on exactly the path you need to be and trust that you'll make it work one way or the other.

*HUGS*

If I could write myself a letter it would be this to the T! Loved this post!
