BRAVE GIRLS 9/2/11
Dear Clever Girl,
You know so much more than you give yourself credit for. You have learned so many things that you have forgotten that you have already learned, and you have done so many more things than you let yourself remember.
It's easy to think you haven't made it very far, or that you don't know very much, or that everyone else is miles ahead of you. But beautiful friend, really really really think about all that you have done since you were a little girl. You have done SO MUCH, you have endured SO MUCH, you have learned SO MUCH and you have taught others SO MUCH.
It feels good sometimes to just think about what you know, and how you came to know it, especially the things deep in your heart that you know for absolutely sure -- things that no one can ever take away from you.
Really think today about what you know, what you stand for, what you have learned and what you have taught, what you can share and what holds you together, the knowledge, wisdom and experiences that you have EARNED because you lived through them.
You are a phenomenal woman. Do you remember now?
Try not to forget again, ok?
You are so amazing.
