Dear 15 year old me,

There’s ONE version of yourself, only ONE you and there will only ever be ONE of you. Your life is valuable and precious. Be unique, stay bold and true to your standards, protect your integrity and values. Remember, Responsibility and Reputation are important but what counts the most is what you do when no one’s looking. By being you, will attract the right people into your life – the people who will add COLOR to your world. Family and genuine friends make life worth living so always be grateful to those who make you happy.

Make life a never-ending journey to learn… School is just the diving board – the pool of life is full of invaluable lessons and stories needed to be learned. So, travel and EXPLORE, live with all your being, and enjoy the process 

Listen to others life experiences and learn from them. This is how you’ll GROW. Don’t forget to always keep your journey fun and adventurous.

Embrace heartache … You will survive, smile & be passionate again. Remember – there are far better things ahead than what we leave behind. Liberate your soul from all problems – and choose HAPPY! Embrace your flaws & remember if you make a mistake, out of three wrongs, one is right. Imperfection is inherent in us all. So be BRAVE – learn to say no when it hurts. Always do what feels right and if it’s not working – change it.

Inner peace is what matters most…Sleep with a clean heart and know – You always have a choice.

Lastly, as they say, silence is gold. Just give it to GOD and go to sleep!

Remember your 5 pillars:

  • inner peace 
  • happiness 
  • values
  • adventures
  • responsibility 

There will always be a place for you. Stay Unique 


With love,

29 year old me”
