With age, we mature and grow into wonderful women, but even though we are older, wiser and more empowered than ever, it can still be easy to forget our true value.
When life takes a difficult turn, our confidence can be knocked, and our sense of self-worth may take a nosedive.
This is why we recently asked some of our wonderful clients to think about what they would say to their 18-year-old selves, to boost their confidence, if they had the chance.
The new ‘Note to Self’ Series
We’ve collated these words of wisdom into a ‘Note to Self’ e-book and, in this new blog series, we’ll be sharing the stories in the hope that they inspire you.
Since their teens, these ladies have lived, loved and learnt so much. We felt that we could all benefit from their experiences and advice.
In this edition, you’ll meet Sam.
Sam’s ‘Note to Self’…
I know how excited you are about the future. You’re so close to entering this new world of possibility, enlightenment and adventure, and I’d like you to do something for me: hold on to that feeling and never let it go.
Life can be tough, but you’re so ready for this next step, and that feeling will keep you moving forward.
Other people’s opinions are just that. Be confident in who you are and your plans, because no matter what other people might say, you deserve everything good in your life.
You are thoughtful and care deeply for the people you love, and those who truly care for you will reciprocate in kind.
Remember to shine. Shine brightly and never dim that light for anyone. You are beautiful, and your smile can light up a room. And yes, you’re quiet at times, and an introvert at heart. This is something to be proud of and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! You do you, always.
Dream big, because you will be good at anything you set your mind to. And don’t forget to follow that dream, you know the one I mean.
When you’re ready, you will be incredible and everyone will see and hear you like it’s the first time, and think, my goodness, isn’t she incredible? And they’d be right, because you are, and I ask you to try and believe that, and to do everything you can to make it happen.
Go, shine, dream and be your kind, beautiful self. This world is yours to make of it what you will, and you are stronger and more powerful than you will ever know.
I love you Sam. You are enough.
Love from me Xx
Thank you, Sam!
Yes, Sam! You ARE enough! Thank you for sharing these inspiring words.
Keep shining like the star you are!
