Dear Younger Me

Dear Younger Me,

First and foremost, let me say, I love you very much. It's taken me a long time to be able to say that, but it's absolutely the truth. Never let anyone tell you that you are less than. You have been created on purpose, for a purpose and the journey to finding that out will be an incredible one. 

Don't be discouraged when plans don't unfold the way you expect them to. God's got everything under control and His ways will always trump your own any day of the week. Be friendlier to people and don't become frustrated if you aren't able to click with everybody. Some people are only ever meant to be acquaintances and that's ok. It's still important to treat everyone with love and respect no matter if they're your best friend or not. 

Dance will always be one of your greatest passions, so work hard at it and don't take it personally if someone corrects you. Corrections are what make us improve in life, they are not limitations. Don't pretend that you know everything and stay humble in all that you do. 

Smile bigger.

Always take a risk in going for those big leaps. for they are the ones that will help you to fly.

I know that elementary school sucks, but you will get through it. Kids are mean and say hurtful things. You will rise above it. You will make long lasting friends. And in 20 years, you may even become friends with the people who hurt you. Everyone has an awkward childhood period. You are not the only one. Just because you are the tallest girl now, doesn't mean you will tower over everyone forever. Don't let one broken friendship affect the trust you have in people for the rest of your time in school or in life. 

It will get better.


Some people are worth holding on to a little tighter because you never know when you will lose them.

Losing people will hurt. Alot.

But you will be ok and you will get through it. You will even find a peace in their loss one day. Hold on tight to God and know that His ways are always better than your own even when you can't understand why things are happening. His strength will get you through the hard times. No other person and no other thing will complete, fix, satisfy, or mend your heart. Trust Him.


College will be an amazing experience, but it won't be the only highlight of your life. I know how hard ending that season will be. However the best is always yet to come. It's ok to let go. Enjoy each moment and soak it up, because it will go so fast. Pay more attention in class and don't skip as much. College is about more than just parties and friendship. Although you will have some of the most incredible friends and sisters in the world. Love them as much as you can will you have the chance.

Letting go of great love will feel crushing, but God has the ability to mend your broken heart.

Grace will be a concept that you won't truly understand until you are 23 years old and this woman will teach you the honest meaning of it. This will lead you to a life with God. One of purpose that you never even believed was possible. She will teach you the toughest and most worthwhile lessons.

Oh, and after what will feel like a lifetime of arguments, you will realize that you are her carbon copy.

People will come and go in your life but best friends are a treasure that are worth holding on to and fighting for no matter what. Your best friends will carry you through every major challenge and celebrate with you through every great joy. Never take them for granted. Love them fiercely. Your life is infinitely better because they exist.

Don't beat yourself up about mistakes that you've made. Cause you will make ALOT of them. You're human and everyone makes mistakes. Don't let that define who you are as a person. Don't let it incapacitate you from doing great things with your life out of fear or self-loathing.

God has forgiven you. Forgive yourself.

This moment...will change your life forever.

The right guy is soooo worth waiting for. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. There is no timeline for him to show up. Just because you haven't met him in the timing you had expected doesn't mean he isn't coming. Wait for him. He shows up at the exact right moment. (God's good at planning like that.) He will teach you what real love is all about. He will truly love you.


Spend as much time as you can laughing. Life will fly by way to fast to be serious all of the time.

Love those around you. Help them to feel their purpose. Follow God's word. It truly is the very best advice for your life. Make others laugh. Don't be afraid to cry. Speak up for yourself. Resolve old hurts. Extend your heart fearlessly. Show the strength God has given you. Stand up to your fears.
But most importantly...

Enjoy Every Beautiful Season.
