To my dear younger self;

There are so many things I want to whisper in your ear. So many things I want to tell you to ease your heart. Just so many things…

I don’t know which one to start with. Hmm, let’s see. What about let everything fall into place. I know you probably do not understand what is going on, but don’t worry, you don’t need to have it all figured out right now. You don’t need to get it all, it will just fall in place.

And you know what else, follow your heart. Do you know that silent whisper that you hear in your head now and then? Sometimes it tells you reckless stuff. Do it any way that is the magic of being young. And those big dreams you have, hold on to them. Hold on to them tightly. You can become all that you want to become.

And finally, cherish every second that you have. Treat every person close to your heart nicely, make memories with them. Take every chance, take those risks, take that step. Cause one day you’ll look back and it’ll all be gone. What you’ll be left with are memories.
