Dear 12 year old me…

Dear 12 Year Old Me,
Stop flipping caring about what other people thing. You’re stuck in this endless cycle of people pleasing. We hate when people don’t like us or believe in us or whatever it is. We care just way too much. Also, I’m disappointed that my 12 year old advice is still the same as my 22 year old advice, but that’s a conversation for another time. 
My point is that you have to stop letting other people’s opinions get in the way of who you were meant to be. You are altogether lovely, and you have an amazing purpose in store for you. You are beautiful enough, worthy enough, and talented enough to fulfill that purpose. You will do great things. YOU WILL DO GREAT THINGS. You will do great things. And nothing that anyone ever thinks can ever stop that. If you blow one opportunity, there is another one in store. You can write as many new starts to your story as you need to. You can be fabulous and fierce. You can be strong and determined. You can be a fair and fun leader (although it’s gonna take a LOT of work, sorry, try to get started on that a little earlier?). You will do great things.
Xoxo, Cindy 💜
