Dear Tender Girl,

MOVE FORWARD, my friend, and keep your eyes on all that’s around you. Don’t let what you see stop you, but keep moving forward. Look forward so you know where you are going, so you can keep an eye on your goal, so you can stay focused.

DO NOT LOOK forward and imagine the things that you might be afraid of if they might end up there. Do not look forward in fear. Do not look forward to compare yourself to the girls who are in front of you. LOOK FORWARD with excitement, with gratitude. Look forward, and MOVE FORWARD. KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

Look to the left and look to the right as you are MOVING FORWARD, but only to see the flowers and the smiling people and the beauty and truth and creativity and inspiration all around you. Do not look left to see that your neighbor is doing something more interesting, or better or easier. Do not look to the right to see that she has firmer thighs and a bigger house and better behaved children. Look forward at YOUR PATH. See the sunrise on the right and the birds flying on the left, but KEEP MOVING FORWARD

Look back to be thankful, look back to see how far you have come, but do not look back to see what was left, what you regret, what you wish had not happened.

Look back to see everything that brought you to now and KEEP MOVING FORWARD.

You are so very very very loved. You are just right. You are on track.

Keep moving forward.
xoxo
