Letter to My Younger Self

The dear Chocolate Covered Daydreams has put up a challenge on her blog here to go with a pretty great giveaway. The challenge is to write a letter to your younger self. In it she asks what would you say, would you be serious or funny? Tough call. There is so much I’d want to say to myself and so much that I’m still in the process of learning but here goes:

Dear Young Kwana,

Relax, it’s not all that bad. Stand tall and when you smile mean it, when you laugh mean it and when you cry mean that too. Slow down and take your time because time is all you have. Realize now how precious it is and please don’t waste so much of it worrying. Trust yourself and have faith that you will make it through. Always.
Oh and you are really beautiful. Did you know that?

Don’t dream it, be it.


P.S. don't forget to scroll down and enter my PVE giveaway. Thanks.

Thanks Kwana for entering the giveaway! I love it! So very true. Isn't it something that if only we could really write a letter that our younger selves could've had in place, how much different life may have been?

Such a nice letter to your younger self... wouldn't it be nice to time travel a letter like that to ourselves?

Nice letter...I wish I knew than what I know now. Funny you try to pass on this wisdom to your children and they look at you like you haven't a clue. I guess you have to go through the learning process. Have a wonderful Friday.

Wonderful message, especially at this time of year when a "letter to my younger self" is just what we all need to dig deep and find the magic in believing.
