the young woman I was

As I set goals for the new year, I was going through my old journals and came across goals, resolutions, mission statements I set for myself years ago. Ambitious goals of education, family, empathy etc; and it occurs to me just how much I absolutely love and empathize with the young woman that I was. I beat myself up for so many could haves, should haves and would haves. But reading these past journals of my younger self, I think to myself that if I were to meet her this very day, I would say “My dear sweet girl–you are doing the best you can everything considered. It will be okay. Stop worrying so much.”
