“Ohhhh hey girl heyyyyy!”
I cut my own bangs for this pic!!!
I couldn’t help but look at this moment in time and wonder how things might have looked on my life journey up until now,
If I was to go back and give advice to this little one, from the adult me today. I think I’d tell her not to ever make anyone else’s beliefs her own, as a rule. I’d tell her to always trust her gut. I’d tell her that bad things will for sure happen along the way, but that’s just so she can know what she really wants in contrast to what she doesn’t want. And that’s why she’s here. ... to grow and expand and experience life to the fullest!
I’d tell her to focus on what she wants and not ruminate on the conditions of what feels bad, because she has the power and the right to choose her own thoughts, and remind her that it feels good to see the beauty in things even when they aren’t pretty.
I’d tell her to let everyone off the hook ... because no one is responsible for keeping her sad or angry or scared, except for her. I’d tell her that anytime she feels less than totally and unabashedly in love with who she is, she needs to remember that she is a badass and no one can steal her bright shiny light. ... And that love and kindness and joy is waiting for her to connect with it, always.
... I’d tell her that if she chooses to listen to me as her many-years -later-self ... that she totally would never make out with Jason Butacco at the roller rink when she was 13 because he was super creepy and she would have known she deserved better than that!!! I think a lot of us live our lives from someone else’s faulty belief system. We make it our own belief because that’s what we were taught ... either verbally or through actions or through witnessing something that made us believe that the world is just “like that” ... and then, we live that out ... until we find what feels better for us.
What would you say to your little 3 year old from that beam of sunshine in your heart today?
... knowing what you know now, and what you wish you knew then.
Besides ... “Don’t cut your own bangs!” 😝
