Sometimes you might forget who you are and where you’ve come from. In the effort to become the person you’ve always wanted to be, you might forget some of the most important lessons you’ve ever learned. It is so important to remember that you cannot be the person you are unless you lived the life you lived, which is why these lessons are so vital for you to remember – even if you don’t want to or think you need to.
You wouldn’t be who you are today if you weren’t who you were yesterday or if you didn’t grow up the way you did. This means it’s important to remember your roots and not to be embarrassed or ashamed of where you came from. Even if your childhood wasn’t perfect, thank your parents because they’re the reason you are the awesome person you are right this second; even if they didn’t mean for you to be.
Remember Your Natural Beauty
Instead of looking in the mirror and hating what you see without makeup or hair product, be thankful for your natural beauty. One day, it’s all you will have left. Again, you wouldn’t be the person you are now without it, so why hate on it?
Even if you aren’t where you want to be or where you thought you’d be at this age, remember to stand tall and be proud of who you are at the moment. If you cannot be proud of who you are right now, you won’t be proud of who you are tomorrow.
You cannot be happy in life if you are not thankful for what you have right not. You might think you’ll be thankful when you have a million dollars in the bank and all those other material things we all possess, but let’s be honest; if you aren’t happy with what you have now, those things aren’t going to make you any happier.
