This morning I was flipping through my journal to write some inspirational words I received last night and came across a letter I wrote a few months ago. The last two years has been a lot of transitioning for me, learning about who I truly am as a person and being dedicated to becoming the woman God created me to be. During this time, it has taken much focus and determination to not be distracted by what and who is around me. As I wrote in past blog post, I was always the girl in a relationship (in which I thought each one was so serious), because of that I never spent time by myself learning who I really am. Of course during this transition there has been struggle, but the fruit of this journey is so much greater than the struggle. I am growing, becoming a better person and still learning.
The inspiration for starting this letter came from a popular trend amongst celebrities. In which they write a letter to their younger self, usually sharing wisdom they’ve gained or thoughts about their childhood. After reading the letter from Oprah Winfrey and Bethenny Frankel, I was inspired to write based on all that I’ve been learning about myself. I didn’t write with intentions on sharing, because I know I still have much to learn. However, this morning I was moved to share and as I continue to grow I will continue to write. My prayer is, that as my letter continues it will help another girl grow.
A Letter to Her:
Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. Believe in whom God created you to be. Embrace what is unique about you. Don’t let someone’s opinion of you change who you are. You are a precious jewel, created in the perfect way by God. Never let anyone dim your light… keep shining! Love yourself, love others and appreciate the life you’ve been given. You have a great power; a power to birth and nurture greatness. There isn’t anyone on earth that has your DNA. You are beautiful and unique; no one has your exact smile or exact eyes. Watch the company you keep. You don’t have to change your character to fit in. Be you! The ones that are suppose to be in your life will be there. Be happy, be carefree, be friendly, smile and hold your head up high. Carry that confidence with you wherever you go. Be a leader, set the standard for those who will follow you. You hold a great power to accomplish anything you set out to do. Try new foods, explore new places and meet new people. Never doubt your passion; work everyday to perfect it because your gift will make room for you…
