Find the love that is within you.
To My 13 Year Old Self,
In order to find peace, joy and happiness within, you must first learn to love and accept YOU. You must find the love that is within you. Make yourself happy by doing YOU.
In order to treat others the way you would like to be treated, think before you speak. Every word or action has consequences. Try your very best to think before you DO.
Stay calm and peaceful when faced with difficulties – try yoga, watching a movie, praying, etc. Try to live in peace, love and harmony.
