Back to the Basics; A Letter to Myself

Slow down. Take a deep breath and get back to the basics. You stumbled too far off your path but it’s okay, you know your way back.

Trust yourself. Deep down you know what you need to do.

Staying true to yourself is the hardest thing you’ll have to do but it is so worth it. So unbelievably worth it.

You are growing and learning more about who you are and what it is you are meant to do.

Be easy on yourself.

You can’t know everything all at once. It doesn’t work that way. And it shouldn’t. Life is more exciting this way, I promise.

Trust in God. Remember to pray. And, make sure to give thanks EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Get back to the basics, love. It’s okay not to feel okay, but I know you are ready for a change.

You know what to do.



Usually, the advice we give others is what we most need to hear and listen to ourselves.  I have been ignoring my needs and swaying too far away from where I am meant/truly want to be.  I have been too interested in others lives and not putting in the work for my own life. I have forgotten to look within, to ask for help, to dance when I feel like dancing, to rest when I feel tired, and as a result my body, mind, and energy have been suffering.  Time for me to get back to me. Time to get back to the basics.
