A Letter to my Younger Self

Dear You. 

What you imagine for yourself and your life is grand. Keep up the dreams. You must learn to realize that even though you are told it isn’t possible and that they are pipe dreams, those are lies. Anything you desire to do you can fight for and work hard to achieve. You have to want it. You have to want it with all your soul, mind and body. Everything that makes you who you are must be geared toward this ‘impossible’ dream in order for you to attain it. Nobody can stop you but yourself. And at times the government. However, prejudices and stereotypes can be overcome. Be the exception to the rule. Do not give up. Do not stop learning. If you ever come to a point in your life where you think you have learned everything, ask more ‘why’ questions…….reach for learning experiences in as many areas as you can. Learn to do what the world may consider ‘minimal’ tasks……you will learn to respect those who take on those responsibilities and be a well-rounded person. Be kind……be generous……be gracious. We are on this earth to support each other as we all seek to attain our dreams. Your dreams are coming true. It may seem like a long time coming, but I promise you……….they are.

Keep your chin up………..and never forget how beautiful you are when you smile.

All my love and support,
