Dear 2020 version Nova:
Time goes so fast, doesn’t it? It’s been five years since you’ve hit your 30’s; and, it’s not slowing down.
I’m so proud of you! You’ve achieved some super badass goals. Not only, have you gone through a pregnancy without family support; but also, you’ve mothered both daughters the best you could. You’ve even cried at night, frustrated when you harshly reacted.
Though you’ve had some set backs, you’ve continued to grow, always getting back up and trying again. You’ve over come fear of driving. You’ve built your financial situation to a healthier level. You’ve managed to meet the expectations of the county driving laws. You crawled your way out of the darkness with an ex. You’ve planted your roots as a blogger. You’ve taken steps to improve your health. You’ve, also, spent time identifying who you are.
I remember when you were chained to fear. Fear of disappointing. Fear of embarrassing. Fear of answering incorrectly. Fear of failure. There was so much fear in your mind… Fear that no one would love you, or see your worth, simply because you don’t work outside the home.
There were days when fear and anxiety battled to take your peace of mind. The times when money shadowed your joy were so hard. Similarly, so were the days when abandonment felt like laughter in your face. I recall your deep and bottomless burden of 2017. It took every bit of what you had just to breathe.
Time has changed things. You’ve always stood by that truth. You’re now a blossoming blogger, inspiring and lifting up precious lives all over the world. You’re investing into your passions; as you should because you deserve it. I’m certain that, every single day, someone says to him/herself “I’m so thankful I came across her blog! I needed to read this today!”
As you look ahead, walk with pride sweet lady. Your heart is bigger than your body; and, you’re beautiful. You define the essence of an INFJ, HSP, Cancerian woman. You’re brave and intelligent. You’re a great friend and superb mom. You’re actively seeking to be a better sister. You’re so much already to your special someone.
Though these past five years have held changes; I’ve never questioned your ability to overcome.
So Keep Seeking Truth, Speaking Life, and Spreading Kindness 🌟💛
With all my love,
“It is not the the bruises on the body that hurt. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.”
