Dear Me

open quoteclose quoteWhat would I tell my younger self?
The other morning, while I was getting ready for work, I overheard something on television about the #Dearme Campaign. I was immediately intrigued and dropped everything to listen in. Going viral on Youtube was the #DearMe Campaign in celebration of International Women’s Day this month. Women all around the world were taking the challenge of writing a letter to their younger self, enlightening them on the important life lessons they had learned over the years and giving them advice. After watching the short campaign a few times, I wondered what I would tell my younger self. As a mother of two girls and a small business owner of a company that caters mostly to women and young girls, I find myself constantly giving advice to help save them from making the same mistakes I made when I was younger and wanting to inspire them in ways I never knew existed at their age. I feel like it’s my purpose to do so. I know what I tell my kids everyday but I sat and asked myself what would I tell MY younger self? And here is what resulted…

Dear Me,

I just want to tell you that everything is always going to be ok! If I have learned anything in life, it is that everything really does always work out for the best in the end even if it doesn’t seem that way in the moment. You will go through many bumps in the road and that’s ok. It’s all part of the journey. It is important to not stress over the final destination but to embrace living in the moment everyday and just enjoy the journey. This is your journey and no one else’s so embrace it and enjoy the ride.

You know that little funny feeling you sometimes have in your belly? Sometimes it’s a good feeling and sometimes not so good and you really are not sure what the heck is going on. Well good news, you are not fighting the flu. That feeling is your gut telling you something. It is trying to help guide you on your path. Remember to ALWAYS listen to it. When something just feels right in the pit of your stomach, then go for it and the same is true for the opposite. If it doesn’t give you the warm and fuzzies and you’re not sure you should do it then don’t. Chances are you are feeling that way because it will not serve you well. SO despite all your second guessing (which by the way try not to do too much) listen to how something or someone makes you feel. That feeling doesn’t lie.

Do more of the things that make you happy. Living your authentic self is all about being happy, whatever that means to you…Find it and do it often. It’s one of the best feelings in the world.

Remember to never give up. You will get there. Nothing great comes overnight. If you are passionate about your beliefs, believe it will happen. And when you do get there celebrate your successes. Celebrate the little milestones on your journey. The universe loves it. I used to and still do celebrate pampering myself. Once a month I would treat myself to facials, manicures, and pedicures massages. I loved it and I looked forward to it and still do today. It was, and still is, a passion of mine and there is nothing better in life than following your passion…and trust me…stick to what makes you passionate because some day you may even make it your career ;).

Being a girl is awesome and so much fun. You are doing a great job. Know that you are loved and appreciated! Be proud of yourself. Love intensely, help others, and be confident! Love the skin you are in, it’s yours. Embrace it! And last but not least, don’t worry so much! Believe me when I tell you are going to be just fine…actually, you’ll be more than fine ;)!
