Dear 16 … From 32

Dear 16 year old self,

There is a whole world waiting for you … don’t be afraid to go get it! Travel the world any opportunity you get. Put your best in everything you do and smile when you’ve accomplished. Take time to breath it in!

Hard times WILL come however better times are always ahead. Don’t stress about things you can not change but focus on those you are in control of. Don’t be too hard on yourself, you are still learning and mistakes have the power to be a great teacher of life lessons. That reminds me, Life goes by so fast (believe me!) and YOUR time is something you can’t ever get back. Understand just how valuable the use of time is-Don’t waste it! Today will never be repeated, but you do have tomorrow! You won’t always be this young, embrace it! . There’s more days of being an adult then there are being young. Don’t rush it! Adulting is not forgiving!

There’s a time that will come that you will fall in love. It’s ok! Live in that moment, Love is meant to be beautiful! There will also be a time you will hurt, learn to forgive and NEVER allow your feelings to take you out of character. Every action comes with a reaction. YOU are meant to be a Queen , NEVER remove your crown!NEVER let anything stop you from your dreams. If it’s love, it will be patient. It will always support and have your best interest in mind. Never settle for less no matter how handsome the reward may look. Again, remember You are a QUEEN! Any man would be lucky just to gaze in your eyes. With that being said baby girl, every person is not meant to take your treasure. Be choicey in who you allow in and don’t be afraid to let those that don’t ADD to you OUT!! Your sex is sacred. Your body is a temple! Your love is irreplaceable.

Be good to those around you. Treat people as you would want to be treated. Don’t be the reason for a person’s hurt tears! Always aim to be good! Hold dear to your values, never waiver even in the face of adversity. Be strong. Dare to Be different. Know your value! Allow others to see your AUTHENTIC self and fall in love with who GOD made you to be, not a copy. You are the prototype!

Hold your friends close and your family closer. Never miss an opportunity to spend time with the ones you love for we never know our last breath. Don’t get so caught up in life that you forget the circle of people God gifted to you. Laugh! Laugh as much as you can. There will be days you want to cry, its ok to not be OK. But after those tears dry, LAUGH uncontrollablyΒ  for it is good for the soul.

Always always listen to yourself and trust you know yourself better than anyone else. Additionally, listen to older adults at times, remember they may have been through the path already.

Most importantly, put GOD first! Don’t leave your faith behind even when things are going good. Your faith is valuable and apart of who and what you are! Make this world yours babygirl, Don’t be afraid to experience it! Be proud of yourself, you will do fine!

Sincerely ,

Your 32-year old self

Monday words

Happy Monday loves!!

As a writer at heart, I have my days where thoughts and words just flow without meaning or purpose. Unfortunately for you, today is that day!! Enjoy, hope this helps someone!

Failure is never an option. Keep it as an opinion not a status. Love hard but Love smart! Time is something we can not get back, use it wisely!
We can not change yesterday but we can make tomorrow better starting today!
Karma can be our friend or worst enemy… Choose her relationship wisely. Give what you want to receive! Embrace those happy days because we can have plenty of bad ones. Smile through it, troubles don’t last always! Believe in what you bring to the table. Follow your dreams and your heart. Never give up on something you want! Do not be afraid to let go. Do not be afraid to stay and fight. Do not be afraid to just move on.
If one door closes, believe a greater one is about to open. If a person walks out, believe they were not meant to be present for what’s to come. If a situation does not work out, believe it was a temporary learning experience that you have mastered, now time to move on. Everything happens for a reason. Learn!
Look at just how big but small the world is, you are not an exception, LIVE your purpose!
The impossible can be possible! Give thanks for your support system, many do not have that luxury. Never forget your past for it molded you into who you are.
Do not waste energy on games, we have other things in life to promote that energy to.
Be positive! There’s absolutely no joy in negativity. Meditate daily. Clear your mind, just like a machine, we all need to reboot at times.
Begin your day giving thanks to yourself. We are our worst critics. You deserve a compliment from time to time so give it!

Have a happy Monday!!! Keep Karmalized!!
