One Day

Dear Little Ones,

One day you will spend too much time worrying about what others think.
Stop. As Dr. Seuss, one of the greatest authors of our time, so eloquently stated, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

You owe it to yourself to be you. Only then can you achieve your fullest potential. Living a life that you feel others want you to live only keeps you boxed in.

One day you will not do something you really want to do because of an irrational anxiety.
Some call it fear, but it’s really anxiety. Most of the time, those anxieties that manifest themselves as negative voices in our head are irrational and will never come to fruition. They are there to keep you from achieving your goals or fulfilling your dreams. Don’t let the voices win.

All the excuses running through your head that tell you that you can’t do what you really want to do are just that: excuses. If you want to be the person you envision yourself being, you have to look the anxiety in the eye and laugh. And then be the amazing person you want to be.

I want you to learn what took me so long to finally grasp. The gifts you have locked inside need to come out to be shared and enjoyed by others. Those who you imagine would react negatively to you being the awesome person you want to be most likely will love the amazing person you are even more. Don’t hold back. The world needs more people who embrace life and accept who they are.

I love you and I know you can be whoever you want to be and do whatever you want to do. And I’ll be there whenever you need some help.
