Letters to Our Littler Selves – Jen

Letters to My Littler Self – Jen

10 year old me, 15 year old me, you can’t see it now but if you want a model for courage: it’s your mother. If you want a model for integrity; it’s your mother. If you want a model of compassion & love; it’s your mother. If you want a model for quiet wisdom; it’s your mother. Example of hard work, mastery of self and embodiment of selflessness; it’s your mother.   You are lucky to have such a mother. You will struggle with your relationship as you grow but do not despair of it.

On further contemplation I would only tell myself this one thing: That I am braver than I realize and I will be ok.  In fact I will prosper.  I think it is all I would be able to hear at those ages.
