Dear Unforgettable Girl,
Have you ever found yourself thinking, ‘I did NOT sign up for this!’ ??
We commit to something or someone, or we start on a certain path thinking that things will be ONE way when somehow they end up being something else entirely.
The gifts in this? They are MANY if we choose to see them instead of finding ourselves frustrated and resentful or feeling like a mean switch-trick has been played on us.
Try to remind yourself that the good stuff is found in the most unexpected places, and that there are millions of places in life that we don’t even know about yet.
With that fact in mind, know that there’s no way we could get to the very best fruit if we stayed RIGHT where we could see it. Sometimes we have to climb through vines, climb to the tops of trees, and even visit new and unknown places to find the stuff that is best for us. How could we ever even plan for that if we don’t know about it to begin with?
Even if it’s hard, roll with it. Try to learn something new every day. Do your best.
When you end up in a situation that you ‘did not sign up for’, think of it as an advanced course that your teacher decided you were ready for. Feel honored, dig in and learn learn learn!
You are so smart, so capable, and you can totally do this. You can even do it with a smile on your face. And why would you want to do it any other way?
See you in class!
You are so so loved.
