Letters to Myself

Let Things Go

Dear Sydney,

Sometimes you need to learn to let things go. Too often you put aside your happiness to meet other people’s goals and it has never worked in your favour. It’s about time you place your needs and interests above everything else. Sit down and listen to yourself. Take your happiness out of the dark corners of your mind, dust it off and follow it wherever it goes. You might lose things along the way but what you eventually gain will make up the difference.

Yours,

Sydney.

“Follow your happy wherever it leads you.”

Unrealistic Expectations

“Sometimes we create our own heartbreaks through expectation.”

Dear Sydney,

A year ago you had an idea. You wanted to take your love for photography and turn it into a business. Today, a year later, you took that dream and turned it into a reality. Your business stands tall and shows what a little bit of hard work can do. What you have managed to accomplish so far is nothing short of amazing and you should be proud everyday.

Don’t let the fact that you haven’t achieved every single one of your big dreams bring you down. Expecting those giant dreams to become a reality is such a short time is unrealistic and will only lead to your disappointment. Take those big goals and chop them up into smaller sections. Make those big goals manageable and once you’ve got these little bite-sized chunks, you can dive right in on ticking them off the master list.

Never stop dreaming but don’t let those dreams become your nightmares.

Yours,

Sydney,
