(Inside: Teen, your life will always lead you back to the basics. You need to know this: the basics are worth paying attention to. Read on…)
You have a lot of life and experiences ahead of you, a terrain of ordinary and difficult and magical. You will learn, question, laugh, grow, cry, love, persist, carry, and so much more.
But before continuing your path, I just need you to know something. When it’s all said and done, at the end of the day, your life is going to bring you back to “the basics.”
Here’s what I mean: in diverse ways, through various angles, your life is about to teach you that…
We are meant to have purpose. You’ll experience you’re a happier person when striving for a goal. When you’re not sure of your end destination, you’ll learn to look at your right-now life and find small or big purposes where you can make a healthy impact and walk towards that.
Through the joys and sorrows, those things are what you’ll find yourself coming back to for comfort and empowerment. So as you stand closer to the starting line of life rather than the finish, I just wanted you to know the basics are worth paying attention to.
Sometimes, as a mom, I also need to go back to the basics. These cards remind me to stop busy life, look around, and see how much there is to be grateful for, a total game-changer in how I feel. Grab the cards here.
