Letter to Myself: 21

Dear me,

First and foremost, happy birthday girl! You’ve finally reached the age of all ages: 21. This is the moment you’ve waited your teenage years for! The day where you’re officially out of that awkward, “yeah I still can’t drink at 20” stage. But please, don’t think that being 21 makes you look older. I guarantee when you go out, people are going to look at your ID like, “are you sure you’re not underage?” Haha. I know you’re feeling a little down right now, even on your special day, but don’t worry. You’re going to have a great time later on this weekend with friends and your love. Take this day to let that disappointment out and go through the night with a smile. Reflect on your life, dream of and work towards the future, finish watching this PlayStation 4 announcement video, listen to music, and most important: finish your blog posts! I know you can do something to heighten your mood to where it used to be before you were disappointed, even if you think there is nothing that can make you happy right now. You’re too pretty to cry right now. I know it’s your birthday, but don’t cry. “Don’t be upset.”

I just wanted to tell you that you are a great woman and that you can do anything you set your mind to. I know when you’re laying in bed at night, you start to doubt yourself. You start to tell yourself that you can’t do all the things that you want to do with your life and that you’re all alone. You’re not. You have those who support you, both in real life and Internet based, though they may not always tell you. You’re too creative to beat yourself up like this. You have so many ideas floating through that big head of yours and that’s great. Do them all when you can. But take it one day at a time. Realize that you’re awesome and the moment you can tell yourself that every single day, the happier you’ll feel. You need to live your life, regardless of what outsiders may say. You’re 21 years old! You better live your life for you and no one else right now. Smile love. Smile through the disappointment and the tears you have right now. Smile through the sadness. I know it will take a while for you to get over this, I know that you’ll feel better later on tonight.

I love you, me.

P.S. Btw, when you finally get around to purchasing your first drink with your friends, make sure you pick out something good. If not, you will regret it. Haha ♥
