Note to my 16 year old self
Friday, January 25, 2013
So part of the BLC challenge this weekend is to write a letter to your 16 year old self. Well, one thing I know is I could of talked until I was blue in the face and I wouldn't of listened. Not because I knew it all but because of self-doubt.
When Dad says "You have the world at your finger tips" and "you can be anything you want to be" he is right. You have so many advantages, you are smart, strong, athletic, pretty and warm hearted. Don't be afraid to show people the real you. Don't worry about what they are thinking. Mom use to say "People aren't making judgements about you that you are making about yourself" she was right. They are worried about themselves. Nobody is holding you back but you. You don't NEED to have a boyfriend all the time and you are NOT fat. Concentrate on developing yourself. Challenge yourself. Stop putting yourself in a box - try new things. Somewhere inside of you you wanted to be the underdog and then prove to people you could be great. Multiply the gifts you have and give them back to God through others. He has given you so many blessings so reach into the world and make things happen, grow as His child so when life comes to meet you with a husband and children you meet them right back ready to add to their lives.
You're a good person who is cutting themselves short by needing a boyfriend and always dieting. Look outside your box, there is not a box except for the one you created. Most of all, you are loved for who you really are.
