Taking a look at where you are verses where you’ve been is mind blowing. When you think about all the ill fortunes and mishaps that have occurred it is astonishing that you were able to get through it. It’s amazing to be able to look back and say, “Wow, how did I get through that?” I’m pretty sure that at the time it seemed nearly impossible and no one could have told you differently. How about if you were able to go back and give advice to your younger self during that situation? What would you say?
What would I say to ME…my younger-self during such times of adversity? Well, I would start with telling myself this:
I want to let you know that no matter how bad things look there is always a brighter side to every situation. As long as I keep GOD first, have faith and believe in the unseen, the impossible will be made possible. I would inform myself to learn to find a balance between what’s in my control opposed to what’s not.
Recognizing the difference makes letting go and moving on that much easier. I would also tell me to believe in myself, embrace my differences and love every aspect of myself, be fearless, have hope and never give up because I can make a difference. Because even after the gloomiest of storms know that I will shine as bright as the brightest star and life will be better and greater than what I has ever known.
This letter to me would be very simple yet used as a that can guide me get through tough times as they come up. If you were given the chance what would you say? What would you tell yourself to make certain you knew everything was going to be alright? What would be your “letter that can” be the best advice you could give to yourself based upon what you know now? Your letter can be so powerful. So, go ahead and take the time to think of about it and just write your younger self a letter. You owe it you yourself! You’ll be glad that you did.
