Day 20 – Dear 20-something Angela…


First of all, you are fabulous just as you are! Don’t try to change for anyone else. It’s not worth it. The people that are worth knowing will stick around and love you for you… not because you’re who they want you to be.

You have a lot to offer the world. You are passionate, loving, loyal and you have developed skills throughout the years that you will use, even if in a different way than you imagine. Don’t take any moment for granted. Be grateful for where God has you today. Don’t wish away your single years. Sure, you want to get married but don’t rush into anything. Wait for the right guy. As they say, “It’s better to be single your whole life than marry the wrong guy.” Don’t settle for anything less than the one who is perfect for you. (Not perfect! But perfect for you)!

Don’t let fears about money hold you back. Yes, money is important and debt can trap you. But remember to have fun too. Don’t be so stressed out that you skip out on opportunities to make memories you’ll cherish forever!

Realize that change is okay. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that aren’t healthy and move on with your life. Don’t settle for comfort and security and avoid taking risks that could lead to bigger and better things. Be open.

Say no if you’re overextended. Protect yourself so you can be more effective in all areas of your life. Be the best you can be with a few friends and in a few situations rather than trying to be superwoman in all situations. Choose carefully. You only have one life to live so make it the best life, not simply a good life.

Allow yourself to let go. Don’t fear losing control. Trust others. Let them in.

Love God above all else. Treat yourself kindly. Approach life with passion and purpose.

Have fun!
