A letter to my twenty-something self

Create your life

Since I am still in my twenties myself, this letter is not written BY me but rather FOR me, and for you.
It’s so profound and awakening, that I had to share it. I found it online and it is written by one of my favourite bloggers Christine Hassler. She wrote a letter to her twenty-something self, mirroring back from her thirty year old self.
There are statements I’ve never really consciously thought about, which blew my mind as I read them. I realized just how much I needed this to hear.
It made me think a lot, helped me to understand and accept myself better and expanded my mind. A very liberating feeling.
I hope you can take something away from it as well. It is definitely worth going through and giving it a thought. Enjoy!


Dear twenty-something self:

Please don’t be so hard on yourself. Be gentle.

Now see, Miz RetroStank is so many different things (aren't we all?), but namely, she IS a Chistian, wife, mother, light, poetess, songwriter, actress, fashion show coordinator, scriptwriter, freethinker, artist, ATLien, and a weirdo with a love for culture and healing. She wants you to know that you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything and everything through Christ! She is native to the third coast, specifically the Southern kingdoms of Arkansas and Georgia. Sweet as pie, good as gold, and free as a bird, she is the only girl of three chill'un, and lawd, did that make for some imagination and shopaholic tendencies. Her father was an Army man and her mama is an infinitely enthusiastic and loving lady. In any case, exposure to different places, expectation of excellence, and a homeopathic childhood environment, majorly tilted her towards uniqueness; she was THAT girl who wore a dragon-print dress with a mandarin collar one day and a funky TLC-inspired look complete with ponytails and barrettes the next. So, by now, you're understanding that she is all about the spice of life. So sit back, buckle your seat-belt, and enjoy "the Funky ride all around the world" (in the words of Outkast).

Two Cents, anyone?
