By nature I do love to research all things. I find a blog, Chronicles of a Busy Mind by Alicia Cuthbertson where she gave advice to her 21 year old self. Thought to myself...if that were myself what 10 things would I say to that young girl of 18?
- Write, write all the time. You fell in love with the pen in 7th grade, never let it go. Don't give excuses- for not doing something that heals you. Writing is your medicine, take it daily. Actions that bring you happiness should be exercised daily.
- Different is not bad. Your future will not be what you envisioned. There will not be a prince on a white horse that will scoop you up taking you off to the giant castle. Different is not bad, you can still have a life of meaning and purpose. You may have to be your own knight in shining armor but that will make you stronger. I believe a wise person once told me that 'that gives you character.' Who doesn't want more of that?
