Dear Future Flo,
You’ve come a long way. I’m not sure what other people say to their future selves, but just know that I’m proud of you. Where you are right now as you’re reading this is what I’m working so hard for you to become right now. I know your progress will be so great that looking back on this will be important just to remember how far you’ve come. You were homeless for 3 months this year. You couldn’t find a job that could keep enough food in your belly. You lost almost 10 pounds in 6 months. Be proud of where you are now and where you’ve come from. The struggles we’ve faced in this year of 2017 is building your courage and strength to push for where you are right now.
You’ve gained confidence, wisdom, success, and inspired people along the way. That’s all you’ve ever wanted. You just want to inspire people and better the lives of others. Congratulations, you’ve done it.
Don’t think this journey is over, though. You still have more growing, learning, and inspiring to do. Just don’t forget to stop, breathe, and remember where it all started. I love you. And I look forward to this journey we are embarking on together.
