“I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.” – Lao Tzu
A Letter To My Eighteen Year Old Self
I know you won’t believe me when I tell you this, but Mom really is always right when she says you can’t plan everything. I know this drives you crazy because you love planning everything out, but believe me, you’ll save yourself a ton of heartache if you just listen to her now and ease up on all the planning.
No matter how hard you fight, what’s meant to be will always find its way. Seriously. You’re no match for fate, so don’t even bother trying.
Learn to roll with the punches. Life is so much easier this way.
Learn to roll with the punches, but never be a punching bag. Learn to assert yourself, and don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself or for what you believe in when it counts.
