Hey You, It’s Me – my letter to my 14 year old self

Hey you, it’s me –

Yes I’m the voice you hear that no one else seems to notice, I know it’s hard to grasp that, but really, it’s me.  Actually I’m you, just a bit older, well much older honestly.  I wanted to share a few things with you, maybe a different perspective would be refreshing.

The first thing you need to know is to stop second guessing yourself – your first idea was fantastic.  Remember that the more you second guess the more mistakes you make.  Go with your gut, listen to your heart, and for pitty sakes try to hear the still small voice.

You should know that you don’t need some of those people as much as you think.  In a few years  their last name and parents money won’t matter.  It’s okay if they don’t like you for who you are, be true to you, it pays off – I promise!

When you look in the mirror please try to see who is there, you are beautiful.  There will come a day that you will have a mirror image that greets you every morning, just so you can look back and remember that I told you first just how beautiful you really are.

If it walks like a lion and roars like a lion it’s probably a lion, even if it swears it’s a sheep, it’s not a sheep.  Walk away slowly and trust your inner voice.  Lions stalk their prey, slowly and steadly, until they come in for the kill.  Stay out of the lions den, their wounds leave life long scars.

Write and then write some more, your desire is a gift.  You don’t know it now, but you do a good job and people will one day want to read anything you put on paper.  Remember to be mindful of what you put on paper – write from your heart, not what the lions taunt you to write.
