A Letter to You
You got this. You were born for greatness. Your strength is unmatched. Your unique passions, skills and experiences are needed. You are needed. I urge you to be brave, to speak up and speak out, challenge and follow your destiny, for no one was else was given your eyes. We are relying on you to do so. Do not allow others to tell you where you belong. You belong where you think you belong. Do not define yourself too young, your identity is who you say you are when you are there. You fit no mold. I hope you will push through when the going gets rough, I hope you will seek and work for connection, I hope you will do what’s deep in your heart calling you forward. Just because someone else is doing exactly what you want to do, no one will do it the way you will. We need you to follow your calling, even if that calling feels silly or scary. I hope you find ally ship and mentorship, as there is nothing greater than the advice of a wise mind. May you make your own choices, challenge your old views, and follow advice that has been filtered. I wish you never let the words of others determine you or break you. May you allow yourself to feel emotions without judgement, fully embracing the depth of both sadness and joy. I wish you to find time to embrace who you are fully, knowing that you may not be full yet. May you have the wisdom to identify and reduce toxins and when to seek help. I hope you embrace your perceived imperfections. May you know your weaknesses and embrace curiosity. I hope you never stop learning. May you be kind and patient and gracious with yourself and practice gratitude. You have purpose, great purpose. May you learn the power of your own mind, the power of letting go and the power of helping others. I hope you will follow your gut, always know when to leave, when to say goodbye and when to say hello. May you allow yourself time to breathe, and value time away. I hope you will not let fear make decisions for you, for you can overcome any fear. May you travel and broaden your understanding. May you learn how to put your pieces back together when no one else will do it for you. Do not fear the power of vulnerability, for it can lead to depth of relationships worth living for. I hope you teach others, love others, and encourage others. I hope you use your voice to lift others up and always seek differing views. May you never compare yourself to others. May you never feel superior than or less than but fight for equality. Always treat your body with wholeness and love and be in awe of your physical capabilities. May you know you are not alone, but have the strength to do anything alone. Seek friendship, be transparent, communicate well, and be honest, clarity is kindness. May you never speak poorly of others, but seek truth and companionship. May you smile often, stretch your legs, take a deep inhale, and see the bigger picture. Find joy and spread joy. Find hope and give hope. Speak for those who can’t speak. Take action for those who are too afraid. Support one another.

I’ve always had a passion for women’s issues. As women, we are constantly asked to do more and be more, but at the same time to stay quiet and don’t make a scene. Women are half the world, which means there are a lot of us who feel the same way. We have gone through similar struggles, from insecurities to relationships, but we haven’t shared them. Worse, we never shared our solutions. Us women have to encourage one another, build and teach each other. So this was my letter to you, from me. I would love for you to share your letter to women, young girls, or maybe even a younger version of yourself in the comments below, you never know who may need to hear it.
