Notes To My Younger Self:

For you, success will mean being your best everyday—embracing blessings, gifts, challenges and difficulties, mistakes and flaws too. Letting go of any woundedness, trusting that circumstances have a way of balancing themselves out. Embracing family and friends as they are, not expecting them to be like you or as you think they should be, and believing they will accept you in the same way. Understanding that you don’t have to agree with all of their beliefs and opinions in order to care for and love them. Success is being honest and open about your feelings in relationships. Setting boundaries and respecting the ones other’s have set. Living with the unwavering confidence that you have a destiny, one designed just for you and others have the same gift. Success for you is believing God doesn’t start something without finishing it. And He can be trusted.
