What would your younger self tell you today?
Posted on July 12, 2019
You can find endless amazing articles about writing a letter to your younger self…which there is great value in those thoughts for you now, however I think what is even more intriguing is what would your younger self write to you today?
Do you remember when you were younger, and you had high aspirations of what your life was going to look like? Were you going to be an astronaut, a doctor, a veterinarian, a superhero, or a princess…? Do you remember the you that climbed a tree with no fear of falling; challenged anyone to a race because one, you knew you would win, but two, because it was exciting; or tried things even though you weren’t sure of the outcome or consequences? Remember that girl that spoke her thoughts loud and proud, that asked Why (a lot), or maybe opposite of that and observed and acted in a way that shocked most. That girl, that inner kid you still have in you.
Maybe you are one of the fortunate few who still listens to that voice, but too often we are captured by the “real world” voice and what we “must” do. And given, I’m not saying throw all responsibility to the wind, I’m saying to take that fiery, sassy, spirited, silly, strong, curious little girl and let her lead you for a day. Let her voice be what you listen to for a day, just ONE day. It will change you. It will excite you. It will scare you. It will be a breath of fresh air you need.
So instead of writing to the younger you…let her speak to you.
We can’t promise that at the end of the day, you won’t be on Amazon buying an adult size cape. 😊
