A Letter to My Younger Self

Kinsey,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are in for a ride. There are going to be bumps and bruises along the way. Spoiler alert, you will get your heart broken more than once. But you will grow, so much.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will meet friends who inspire you and be there for you. You will learn that you can do more than you think you are capable of.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ll find out that your heart can grow bigger than you can imagine right now. You will discover the joys and the messiness and the beauty and the challenges of motherhood.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will learn how much hard work pays off, and how satisfying and rewarding it is.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will find a purpose bigger than you. You will laugh, and cry. You will meet people who will help refine your vision of who you want to become. Keep improving, and stay true to who you are. Be kind. Help others along the way – sometimes the hardest people to love need love the most. ⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will learn from so many experiences. It will not be easy. Some trials will feel like more than you can bear. Trust in God, hang onto good friends, and stay close to your family. Stay positive and cheerful. Be grateful and look for the good. Know that you are loved and valued no matter what.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your life is going to be nothing like what you have in mind right now, but it’s going to be amazing. You’re going on an adventure!

 

Love,
Older Kinsey
