Dear Me: More Stuff I left out - Don't sell yourself short...EVER!

Yeah, I know I beat on this... but it's so important!

When you're young, tomorrow seems so far away.

You want what you want when you want it - RIGHT NOW!


You'll do anything and everything to get what you want. To catch the prize.  To win.

...Whether or not it's the right thing for you.

Perfect example, Love.

It's so easy to get caught up in the butterflies, but never sell yourself short. You deserve the very best. Don't think for a second you deserve any less. You are amazing and the person you chose should love every ounce of the amazing you have to offer.  If they don't see your amazing, move on.

I know that's easier said than done when the heart wants what the heart wants.

Trust me, chasing after something that doesn't want to be caught will never turn out the way you want it to.

Relationships are definitely a balance of power.
I know that sounds harsh, but keep listening.  Love IS a two way street.  If one person is twisting themselves into a knot to please the other, eventually the person doing the acrobatics is going to get tired.  Eventually the knot will unravel & you'll become who you really are anyway.  It's really not worth the effort.  Be who you are.

You deserve someone who will be completely in love with every single breath you take.

Remember, too....  Love isn't just about romantic love - it's about all relationships.

Relationships with friends, relationships with family, relationships with the people around you.

It's about loving yourself enough to know who you are and how you want to be treated.  Respecting yourself, and knowing what you will and will not tolerate in your life.

In youth, it's so easy to be blinded by the wants that you miss the really great things that are in front of your face.

High school relationships, for example, are built on "how to be popular". Being better and better and best.  No matter who you step on.  Don't be that person.  Be better.  Be the one who rises above it all and has friends who love you for being you.  The other things?  They're make believe. Trust me.

Always follow your heart - but listen to your head.  The heart wants what the heart wants, but the head knows what's real.  It knows who your friends are.  It knows who loves you and it knows who will shatter you.  Be smart.  Keep your eyes open and see what's real.


Even the box with the prettiest wrapping can be empty.

Hold on to your friends.  No matter what.  They are the ones who know you to your core.  You may have disagreements and times where you are not on the same page - but you will always be in each other's life book. Work it out.  Turning back the pages will always make you smile.

You will always be the best you that you can be.  Love that.  Embrace it.
Be you.

Don't ever sell yourself short... EVER!

You are amazing and wonderful!

Thank you for reading my blog!

  1. I always love what you write but today you . are . amazing. (and always amazing...).

    I am printing this one out for my daughters (and son) and as they get older, they will be reading this. I think all to often people settle or try to be what they think someone will want. Being true to yourself and never selling yourself short is golden.

    You.Rock.My.World!!!

  2. Well said!!

    You are a wise lady...unfortunately most kids will not pay attention to these words of wisdom until they have already made some really bad decisions, but keep pitching, some will penetrate the unfinished brains out there.
