Dear Summer 2018,
Thank you for allowing me to discover a better version of myself, my life , my fears , my values and my goals. I have learned that happiness is contagious and that it is important to spread it to everyone. I have also learned that my happiness is untouchable and my success is not measurable to any one else’s success. There will always be someone ahead of you and someone who is behind you. When people see how happy you are and how well you are doing, you are strong and you are unstoppable. Sometimes strength is not always shown by what is on the outside, but more what is on the inside 🙂
You allowed me to realize that life isn’t always easy, but the more positive you are, the more things fall into place. Some of the best people enter your life and change your life when you least expect them. Boys also come and go and being a single crazy girl is so important, because self love is the best love and hanging out with the girls can change your entire day! Drinking your favorite iced coffee every morning before work, school, or the gym is seriously a game changer and I will now always abide by that.
Eating a chocolate cupcake more than once a month or once a week, will not kill me or make me fat. Thank you for making me realize that I am a dreamer and that I should never settle for less than what I dream. I realized how good I have it in this world , how loved I am and hat I actually am good at the things I am passionate about. Making other people happy and inspiring others is something that I love doing and someone else’s laughter can light up the room and make your day.
I am good at the things I love, however I do not know everything and never will. I love learning from others who love the things I am most passionate about and there are so many talented people in this world, who deserve a lot more credit and showing that that you notice it can change their entire day.
I also learned how much I love to just take a walk and admire what is around me. I also learned that I am really addicted to my phone and I hope to one day be able to not be on it so much.
Waking up at 9:00AM will always be better than waking up at 11:00AM and there is nothing better than a morning run. I mean, waking up to do it stinks, but the end is worth it.
This summer has brought me so much joy and has let me appreciate so many things I never realized I loved. It also made me realize how special life is, so live it to the fullest everyday and make sure others are doing the same around you.
Here’s to being a better version of myself , with a curly haired picture of myself, because that is my most authentic self.
Once again, thank you Summer 2018… you have made me a better person and I have learned so much in these past few months.
XO Taylor ❤
