Reflections Before Bedtime #44

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Sometimes, I forget my life is just beginning. I forget that I am a perfectionist and that truly, I don’t have everything figured out, and that is okay. It’s when I remind myself of this that my breathing turns normal, and I realize my ponytail is so tight my younger self would have been proud (I had a thing for tight ponytails and tight shoes). It’s good to let your hair down at the end of the day and dream; dream of what you will work for tomorrow to hold. Don’t let others define you, complete you or set the rules for you.

Don’t look at yourself through a distorted lens; see yourself in a vision framed by hope and the perseverence that will make dreams come true.

  1. Keep that voice that reminds you to ease up. That’s it’s a marathon, not a sprint. That voice will save you again and again . . .
