In honor of #InternationalDayOfTheGirl, I decided to write a letter to my younger self.
I know you feel alone and like no one understands you. I know you feel overlooked because you’re constantly labeled as “too shy” or “too quiet.” Know that I see you. God sees you. And soon—the world will see you. Know that you are special and no one can blow out the fire that’s within you.
It may seem as if everyone is accomplishing things before you, easily making friends, or finally finding their place in life. Keep running YOUR own race through it all, girl. No rose ever blooms before its time.
Everything will start making more sense soon. Even I still don’t have all the answers. But, remember this:
God is arranging people, places, and opportunities in your favor. You just have to BELIEVE.
I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way. I can’t wait for you to see all that is already yours.
