A Letter to Myself

A lot of changes are coming in my life, big ones that affect me in major ways. I am known to get stressed way to easily and make myself sick worrying about things. I decided to write this letter to myself to look at whenever I feel like I need a lift up.

Hey girl,

I know you're super stressed right now. But I want to remind you of a few things.

1. Your predicament is only momentary, you won't be living paycheck to paycheck every day of your life. So for now just remember that you have all the necessities and a little extra. Just remember that one day it will all come to fruition and learn to live in the small things.

2. You will make it. I know that this test seems like it's going to be impossible, but you are a really smart girl. You can do it, and you can pass. Don't allow yourself to get psyched out from thoughts swirling around in your head. Just remember to pray and do your best, cause that's the best you can do.

3. The future is not in your control. You know who your maker is and you know who has full control over your life. You are not promised tomorrow, so make sure that you do not miss the opportunities right in front of you today, worrying about tomorrow. God has it all under control and he knows exactly what is going to happen. Rest in that.

4. Breath. Don't forget to take those moments, light your candles, put on your relaxation music and just lie on the couch. That doesn't make you lazy or unproductive, it makes you better. You need time to unwind, make sure you allow yourself to actually do that. You do so much for others don't forget about yourself.

5. You only need to please 1 person. God. No one else, not your family, not your friends. As long as what you are doing brings Glory to God then you are doing what you are suppose to. Don't worry about what others think or what they themselves are doing. You do you girl.

6. One day this will all make sense. When you look back 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years for now you will get the opportunity to see the little chess pieces that God has moved around to have you exactly where he needs you in that moment. It will be a good day and you will get to read stuff like this and remember that it all worked out and you didn't need to stress about it.

In the end, you are beautiful, smart, funny, creative, loving, caring, and the list goes on and on. Never ever forget that my love.
