There’s beauty in the words we write, but the true beauty lies in the words we write to ourselves. If you are anything like me, my love language is Words of Affirmations which means I feel a deep connection to words and conversations. Although it is powerful to have breakthrough conversations with others, I believe that the most empowering conversations we can share in our lives are the conversations we have with ourselves.
I’ve written a letter recently welcoming a version of myself that I am transforming into while I embark on the next chapter of my life. On the outside, it reflects a move and relocation to a new city. On the inside, it reflects so much more. Here is the letter I wrote to the new version of myself, while I welcome all that is mine to claim during this process of transformation.
I admire your strength and courage by continuing to rise after you’ve fallen. You’ve got a fire in you that is magnetic and is something I will never take for granted. You’re my number one heroine and the best role model I could have ever asked for. May you allow me to move forward with grace, following the aligned paths that are meant for you to discover… and when life’s waves come crashing towards the shore, may you use your strength & faith to flow through them, rather than resist & fight to the surface.
May you use your strength to tap into your divine intuition as that voice and clarity are the essences of YOU. Find the space to listen to her guidance every chance you can because we know the outcomes when you don’t! My promise to you now and every day after is that we are going to live abundantly. There is so much love to give and receive, experiences worth living and sharing, and new faces to welcome onto this journey with you. May you never come from a place of lack or scarcity, & always from a place of prosperity.
We are the main character in the story of our lives. We have the power to write and revise our narratives as we see fit. My assignment to those of you who feel drawn to this exercise is to honor your gift and the message you have to share with others, but most importantly the narrative you share with yourself. May these letters to the future, more transformed YOU bring you the peace, clarity, and motivation you seek to evolve into the best version of yourself each and every day.
