A Message To Your Younger Self: What Would You Say?
If only you knew then what you know now. A Message To Your Younger Self is the second book in the We Inspire Now anthology series, created by Antoinette Pellegrini. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Looking back at your life and at all the key decisions and events that shaped you and that took you in a certain direction, what do you say to yourself? Do you wish some things had never happened? Do you wish you had chosen differently? The past still influences us, but only if we let it. Are you carrying the past with you? Is it still shaping you and influencing your decisions? Are you consciously or unconsciously bringing the past into your present? In this compilation, ten people took the journey to reflect and speak with their younger selves. They write about their own inspirational stories of achievement, growth, survival and what advice they would give or wish someone had given them when they were younger. In sharing their stories, they hope to inspire you to reconnect with your younger self, whether that is to heal past hurts, gain strength or to remind yourself that you are loved. Ultimately, A Message to Your Younger Self is about survival, healing and love. It’s healing the past, taking that healing into the present, and loving the person you were and are today. What would you say to your younger self? What advice would you give?
Dreams Can Come True by Gail Conley From the perspective of how I have lived and learned in the past 52 years of my life; my message to my younger self is to remain positive. Although you will witness many things you don’t understand or can make sense of and endure the loss of both parents to cancer by age 23 you will be revived to live another day, meet and marry your soul mate and have wonderful guides and role models helping you. Facing death, the miracle of life and learning to rise above when faced with family tragedy, I discovered that it is how you are guided and loved that will light your way through any darkness. Writing for this book, A Message to Your Younger Self, Book 2 of the, We Inspire Now Series, is an opportunity to tell some of my life stories in the hope of helping others and of healing myself in the process.
