Dear Erin. is something I came up with when I was lazing around dreaming of everything under the sky. You know, we all have that moment where you sit, gaze into space and let your brain wonder to catch whatever ideas there are in the air?Dear Erin,
As you grow, certain things will touch your interest and your heart.
It could be something big and ambitious like being a beauty queen or even something small and not as important like a workout program.
And there will be people who make fun of whatever it is that you care about
They might make jokes about you, pass out sarcastic comments or even laugh right at your face.
These people might be family member, close friends or strangers
But it will hurt the same.
You do not need the approval of someone else to do what you feel deeply about.
Do not let these people make you feel like your goals and interest are of any less importance.
Lions do not loose sleep over the opinions of sheep.
These people do not know what goes on in your thought process,
they were not there when you made these new discoveries
and they surely do not deserve to
If that something brings you conviction or if it touches your soul, do not retreat.
I repeat, Do Not Retreat.
It is these promptings that stir up passion and it is passion that you need to achieve greatness.
And you will achieve greatness my dear.
People may hurt and disappoint
Never place your happiness and peace in the hands of humans
Instead, be confident in who you are and what you feel for.
Now shake off the negativity,
Take a deep breath, Chin up , Shoulders broad.
Remind yourself why you started in the first place
And seize life.
