The letter

Dear Me,

You are on the brink of having your dreams come true. I don’t know when it will happen, but I do know it will.

How can I know this?

I know this because of your refusal to give up when it is so, so hard.

I know this because the fear that is gripping you right now is natural when you are playing and dreaming big.

The anxiety that is running through your chest and playing with your mind just means that you have been too still for too long.

This is not easy.

This does not always feel good.

This at times can feel overwhelming and suffocating.

But, you do not begin and end in these feelings.

No person and no situation can give your permission to give up on the dreams that were placed in your heart by your creator.

Only you can give yourself permission.

And guess what? It’s not gonna happen, sister.

I do not give you permission to quit. I do not give you permission to play small. I do not give you permission to be less, give less, or do less.

You do not have the right to water it down or live with the regret of not being all you could be.

This life your living is a gift.

The talent you are given is a gift.

The failures and heartbreak and seasons of darkness are a gift.

See, now you know you are strong. Now, you know you are capable. Now, you know who you are.

So, do not be tempted to shrink.  There is no tomorrow. There is only now.

Now, it is time to do. “To whom much has been given, much is expected.”

Love, Yourself.
