I came across a post today from Kelly Rowland and it was a note signed to her younger self. It made me reflect on what I would want the younger LaChia to know. I would tell her that it is perfectly fine not to have life figured out. I would tell her to learn what makes her happy and then commit to doing those things.
I would stress the importance of understanding credit and to take it seriously. I would tell her that it is okay to hate school and that college is not a requirement to be successful in life. I would tell her to learn to identify her toxic traits early on and correct herself when they appear. I would tell her to learn to forgive people, for no one is perfect.
Most importantly I would tell her to fall in love with herself before anyone else!
