Dear 10 year old Kayla,
Never give up your dreams. If there is one thing that you should know it is that sometimes it’s impossible to please everyone no matter how hard you try. You are STRONG. You are SMART. You are BRAVE. Don’t waste your time hanging on every word that others say, follow your heart. Some people may question what you want to do in life and that’s okay but follow your heart and your passion. Don’t waste your time in the past, spend time in the present. You will have so many great friends in your life and they are there to lean on in times of happiness and in times of need but don’t let them determine your future. Be nice to your sister, you only get one and you will miss her a lot when you go off to college. Cherish every moment spent with your family as the time will pass way too quickly. You will grow up to be a strong, compassionate, and outgoing woman. Never be afraid to speak up and say how you feel, bottling up your emotions will cause you to get in your head and you don’t want that. Keep being the strong-willed, compassionate, outgoing soul that you are. Good luck!!
