A letter to myself

I think we sometimes forget how short life actually is. It seems like people tel me all the time to make the most of my life while I’m 18 because it simply flies by.

I’m the sort of person who likes to live without any regrets. t’s pretty ironic for someone who seems to dwell over certain situations and over analyse their outcomes, but I don’t think there can be a more accurate life philosophy.

Good or bad, everything you do and everything that happens to you happens for a reason. I’m a strong believer in this and I think this is one of the most powerful factors when it comes to me not living life with constant regret.

I hope I can look back on my life in 50 years and think “Wow.” To be honest with you, I don’t even know what career path I want to choose for certain yet. I;m honestly just living. I’m young. I have so many years left, and for the moment I’m ticking things off my bucket list that I have aspired to do for so long.

I don’t know if I’m typing this out rapidly on my keyboard at 12am because I’m running on 4 hours of sleep and I’m exhausted. But honestly, just live. I think we all forget that we are simply alive and we are made to live. We are made to experience all angles of life, and sometimes they can be more beneficial to us than we first think.

I can’t, and won;t, sit here and say I haven’t made mistakes. I’m human, there’s going to be times when I mess up and beat myself up for it. But sometimes we dwell on mistakes too long and spend our lives stuck in the past instead of the here and now. Everything that has happened in my past has been a learning curve for me. People have had it worse than me, but I have still had my own unique learning experiences that I like to turn into a positive.

The main message that I want to send myself is to just feel alive. Embrace your flaws and mistakes. Make the most f every moment. Every laughter, every tear, every experience good or bad. But with that, stay true. Stay humble and kind throughout. As well as making myself proud in 50 years time, I hope I make the people around me proud too.

Love and happiness always,
xo, Becca

  1. My dad would always say work hard so that you don’t have any regrets. What he doesn’t realise is that that it could cost me regrets in my social life, so what I’m working on right now is balancing the two. Thanks for another great down-to-earth post!


  2. I go university but sometimes I still feel uncertain because I just don’t know what I exactly want to do and it stresses me out. I love this post Becca! x


  3. Love this post, 18 is so young so enjoy it while it lasts! I find plans usually end up changing anyway, so don’t panic if you don’t know exactly what you want to do for the rest of your life.

  4. I completely agree! I think everything in life happens for a reason and you’re right, life is short. Live it to the fullest while you can. Loved this post! Xx


  5. I agree with this 100%! Sometimes you get so caught up in what is ‘expected of you’ when you leave school for example. I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do so I got a job nannying, I travelled a little and then eventually I figured it out! Actually living is the most important thing of all, you never know what is around the corner!
