letter to self.

When you are feeling unsure of yourself, when you are afraid to take the next step, when you feel insignificant, when you feel uninspired, when you feel lost in the big blog world, take a moment.


Clear your mind.

I know your to-do list is too long, and sometimes your dreams seem impossible. I know that it's scary taking risks. I know it's hard to see the point when everyone else seems one step head. I know you put your heart and soul into what you do and it's hard to see the pay-off.

You knew from the start that it was never going to be easy, but you did it anyway because you knew you had a story that had be told, recorded and written down. You had to tell your story so your kids and grandkids could have a piece of you forever. You had to do it because you couldn't function without an outlet for creativity.

And you know what? You are inspiring. You are significant. You are on a non-stop journey because you have passion. You live and breath this. You might still have a long way to go, but think of how far you've come. Everybody has to start somewhere, and that's the biggest hurdle, so don't look back now! And your courage, oh my! You are so brave for putting it all out there, taking risks, sharing a piece of your soul.

I'm so proud of you for finding that one thing that makes you tick, for truly feeling your emotions and being honest about them. Because of this, you're living life to the full, experiencing every moment with a open heart and a clear mind.

And you'll get there. Of course you will. Because your undying passion guides you through the dark. It keeps you reaching for your big dreams, those big big dreams which you deserve. I love you so much. Don't ever forget that.

Ever so sincerely,
