a supportive letter to myself

Dear Me,

You're running around like you just did a line in the bathroom with Miley, yet you still manage to remember to eat, sleep and kiss your husband after a long day. It's rather impressive. But exhausting and not the least bit envious. Your mind races day and night thinking about all of the things you didn't get done today and the things you need to get done tomorrow. Maybe this is what the Goo Goo Dolls meant by "Dizzy Up The Girl." Probably not. I'm sure it had something to do with drugs or sex. Isn't that what all successful albums are about? I digress.

Sure, this time you may actually have bitten off more than you can chew, but this is no time for should haves. Hindsight can be such a bitch. You're all in. Committed. And determined.

Just think. In nine short months, this is all over. Just work, coaching and a social life. Not even a baby, which actually seems easier than what you're going through now. You know, you'll probably be bored when you're not juggling work and class, seeing clients at your internship, writing a research proposal and actually conducting said research, and trying to be a social human being.

I mean, you haven't even posted a picture on Instagram in weeks. This is bad. But you will persevere.

Cut yourself some slack if things aren't perfect. If you feel like you have no clue what you're doing. If doubt you can do this. There is light at the end of the tunnel. It's nine months away, but it's within sight.

Short-term sacrifice for long-term reward.
Short-term sacrifice for long-term reward.
Short-term sacrifice for long-term reward.

You can do this.

Love,
Myself & I

I agree, you can do it! Bust your ass now for great things to come, it'll all be well worth the madness.

Don't forget your caffeine, positive thoughts and go go go.

Hi Holly, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

You can do it and deserve a HUGE pat on the back for going after your dream job and not settling for the career path you originally chose once you realized you wanted something different (how can you make such important decisions at age 18 anyway?). Good for you, Holly! YOU CAN DO IT!
