Letter to my 17 year old self: (My response)
Dear Younger LaTasha,
As of now, you're 25 years old and you're not as confused about life and what you want to do.
You want to spread love (and joy) to the world. You want to see all that life has to offer you. You want to travel all around the world, and love those who love and support you!
As for your career and life, you will accept what(ever) God has planned for you. However, you would still like to be a...
*poet *artist *teacher *dreamer *sweetheart *fashion designer *role model *business owner
You will get there one day! :)
As of now, you have the opportunity to teach art to little kids and you're really excited and hopeful about it!
As of traveling:
You haven't been outside of the U.S. yet - but you will!
You still want to go to all of those places!
Thanks to God, your best friend (big sis Ja), and God-family, you have been to Orlando, Florida; St. Louis, MO; (Columbia, MO); Arkansas; Las Vegas (Paradise), Nevada; and Nebraska.
Soon, you will be going to Texas! Yes! :)
Louisiana, New York, Virginia, California, and etc - You will get to some day! :)
You are so thankful to your God-family and God for all of the blessings and opportunities to travel!
You have been to South Dakota as well!
You love your mom and little sis, Nico, very much! With all of your heart!
You're extremely thankful to still have both of them in your life! As well as all of your friends and loved ones who have loved and supported you along the way!
Too many to name and you love them all!
But life hasn't always been so "pretty". You've been depressed and experienced discouragement, fell in love, and you got your heart broken. But you're stronger now because of it. You're less afraid/fearful of the lessons that you have to learn in/from life. And now you can focus on yourself and learning more about self-love! You are more prepared of what life and God has in store for you!
You have a lot of friends/family, and you will continue to see who remains true.
-Reja -Shaunte -Rachael -Tabitha -Patsy -Kali -Brittanye -Kay -Susan -Cheryl
-Molly Ann -Tamara -Godma Angie
just to name a few!
Also, your mom, little sister, God and Jesus Christ!
Oh, and yourself!
You are: *A Diamond!*
*strong *beautiful *brave *determined *kind *intelligent *inspiring *dreamer
*hardworking *creative *artist *a loyal friend
& you will be just fine!
With God by your side, anything is possible!
And today you put on your "self love" ring & bracelet! :)
Love your older self,
