I have often heard older women say that they look back on photos of themselves from ten years prior and think, "what was I complaining about, I was perfect". Over the weekend I discovered a few photos from when I was seventeen. I now understand what these women have been talking about. What was I so insecure about? I hope that it is a lesson to me, to embrace who I am at every moment. For I do not want to look back and think of any wasted time - filled with self-doubt when I could be remembering my strengths and experiences.
To all my wonderful friends- don't wait ten years to realize how amazing you are now.
