Have you ever wished you could talk to your younger self? Tell her what to do and what not to do? I know I have on more than one occasion. I firmly believe that everything we go through makes us who we are but I would love to give the younger me a little bit of advice. Here are a few things I would not only tell the younger version of myself but everyone who doesn’t believe in themselves.
Be kind to yourself. Stop picking yourself apart. Stop looking in the mirror and seeing the flaws. Look in the mirror and find the beauty. Stop wishing you could be smarter, funnier, prettier. Instead of picking yourself apart, look in the mirror and find 5 things you do like about yourself. Just 5.
Don’t let someone’s opinion of you, define you. If someone tells you that your hair is green, that doesn’t make your hair green, so why do we believe others when they pick us apart? Why do we believe others when they say we are “not very pretty” or say we can’t do something? I still haven’t figured that one out. I do know that their words are not your truth. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” (Thanks Eleanor Roosevelt!) Stop letting others words define you. Just stop!
Believe in yourself. You, my friend, can do so much! Stop limiting yourself. Your only limit is yourself. Believe you CAN make a difference. Believe you CAN overcome. Believe you CAN be the businesswoman/mom/wife/friend/person you want to be. Believe you CAN. Believe in YOU.
A sweet friend had on a shirt the other day that said “I’m Betting On Me!” This shirt hit me hard. When I quit listening to others and started betting on myself, I started on the path of becoming the woman I want to be.
I’m betting on me! I’m betting on you too!

This is very well written! We do tend to be our own worse critic!
