“A letter from my Older Self”
Congratulations! You did it! Day by Day you are learning, growing, changing, and becoming more of yourself. Remember that beauty fades, money comes and goes, and success can be whatever it means to you. Find something you love to do that you are good at, and do it well and with purpose. You will not remember or care about the comments on the photos, the shape of your body, or the amount of fame and money when you are old enough to realize those things aren’t so important.
At the same time, don’t beat yourself up for getting caught up in all of it, sometimes it’s going to feel like the world is working against you or you're working against yourself. It’s okay to hurt, it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to fuck up, but please never give up on yourself. Please, never stop loving life. Ride the lows and highs with passion and excitement. Be grateful for what you have, not bitter for what you don’t. Every moment is an opportunity to do something special, don’t stop living because you think somebody else is doing it better, or looks better doing it.
You sure weren’t put on this earth to wish you were somebody else or wish you could be better. Get out of your comfort zone, explore, see what the world has to offer you and what you have to offer the world. No right or wrong way, no expectations, just making the most of every single day and taking the time to relax and rest when you need to. I think you’ll be amazed at the things you will find.
