Dear Aimee

I hope this letter finds you doing well…blah, blah, blah… Look, here’s the deal. I’ve been meaning to tell you some things but I’m the voice that rarely speaks loud enough for you to hear. You’re a pretty smart girl and you’ve been given a lot of good advice lately. Weed through it, choose what you think might work for you and give it shot. Nobody gives advice with the intention to hurt you so you don’t have much to lose. Go for it…look in the mirror and make a decision. Purge from your life, the materialistic things you don’t need, find creative ways to express kindness and love to others and be patient with your existence. Love yourself and learn from this moment. Slow down and allow your thoughts to connect, your being to feel, and the joy within to burst from its present cage. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t be too prideful to accept it. You don’t have all the answers and that’s okay. Only after you understand what it means to love yourself, can you set expectations for others. This is not the end. In fact, no matter how small your steps are right now, let me remind you that they’re in the right direction…and even if you have to crawl for a while, the mere fact that you are moving is just as much an accomplishment as a full-on run.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
