I love the idea behind the #DearMe campaign. If you don’t know about it, read more here.  Below is my written version…who knows, maybe it will become the first video on my own channel. It's kinda stream of consciousness but here it goes...or actually, maybe we should start with a photo of the young me: 

Dear Me,

What other people think of you is none of your business. Don’t waste your time worrying about it.

Don’t let boys string you along. The breakup was for a reason. Trust your gut!! Thank God and move on.

Your voice matters. Speak up!

Stop stuffing your bra. Girl, people can tell. No one goes from an A to a C overnight.

Stop saying you don’t care about things to prepare yourself for the worst. You can never be prepared for the worst things in life…and by the way, you’re spending so much time doing that you’re missing out on the joy.

Don’t be afraid. There are a lot of people around you who have your back and believe in you.

Happiness is a choice. Live life like you know it and kick miserable things and people to the curb ASAP.

Cherish this time. Do not rush to grow up.

Your mom is awesome and she is right most of the time. This will continue through your whole life. 

Stop that teenage “ugh, my mom is so annoying” bullshit. She’s a friggin’ rock star and you will be more and more grateful for her every day!

When choosing your career, don’t be scared to bet on yourself. You don’t have to choose a tradition and when you do (because you absolutely won’t listen) don’t be driven by money. If it makes you miserable at the outset, chances are it will continue.   

And this whole shy thing…LET IT GO. It’s all in your head but the longer you hold on to it the more problems your’re going to cause. 


Feel free to share links to your own Dear Me posts or videos in the comments section. We’re almost to Friday! Cheers!
