Dear Becoming Girl,

Hello gorgeous friend. You know…a year from now, things will be a lot different than they are today. There are so many things that will be different, things that we just can’t ever guess would be different..then the same old things will be different that always are…another year older, new stuff is in style, new stuff is all the rage….

But some things just might be the same…things that COULD be different if we would make it so. A year from now, we can be doing the same things we are doing today….meaning we will be in the same places we are now (even when our hearts want the day to come when we are finally healthier, when we are finally working toward our dreams, when we are finally focusing on the things that matter most).

For some reason, we crazy humans sometimes think that things will change just because we want them to change….then a year goes by…and nothing has changed. It’s frustrating, isn’t it?

What if we just think for a moment how we want things to be a year from now, then work backwards? What will it take to get things to where we want them to be in a year? What needs to happen TODAY? What needs to be changed? What needs to be started? What do we need to quit doing? What do we need to start believing?


Today is a great day to live in the moment by thinking about what we need to do to get to where we want to be….because nothing will change if we keep doing the same things over and over again.

You can do this, amazing girl! You can! And, it is time!

You are so very loved.
