A Love Letter to Myself

Sean,

You are smart.  You are funny and witty.  You make amazing puns.  Your ability to think sideways is astonishing.  Your intuition is almost scary sometimes.  It's like you can see right through me.

I'm humbled by how well you move and by how strong you are.  You inspire me and many others to do more, try more, and test their limits more.

Your vulnerability is sexy.  It makes me want to know more about you.  It makes me want to be closer to you.  It makes me want to hold you and open up to you.

Your ability to solve problems is impressive.  You tackle hard situations with flair, and you always provide insight when anyone else brings you their challenges.

Your ability to communicate is stunning.  You so often bring disparate people together and handle miscommunication effectively.  You seem to know what people really mean and understand when people aren't connecting to each other, and know how to help them connect.

Your compassion and love leave me speechless.  I've never experienced a heart as open and deep as yours.  You truly treat every person as an equal, and you show everyone unconditional, and non-judgemental love.  It blows me away.

Your generosity is impressive and intimidating.    You have a giving spirit and it honors the best inside of us.

Your willingness to face yourself, face your demons, your shame, your darkness, and to work on it constantly is beautiful.  I want to be like you, and I am inspired by your example to keep facing my own work.

I love you, Sean.  You are perfect, and I want to be around you.  Thank you for being in my life.  Thank you for letting me see with your eyes.  Thank you for allowing me to be myself, for better or worse, while still helping me along if I ask for it.
