Open Letter to Myself

Dear Ciegi,

Can you believe you’ve made it to another year of life?!!!? 28 doesn’t seem that old, but when you’ve lived a life as reckless as mine, it’s a blessing. I’m so very proud of you. You don’t give yourself enough credit for the things you’ve accomplished, and I hate that. You’ve done amazing things up to this point, and you can only go up from here.

This year, I want you to love more. Love yourself more and stop dwelling on the what if’s. Don’t look back on past decisions, bad situation-ships, lost friendships or even those embarrassing drunk fuck ups. Spend more time in the now, and focus on how you can do something to make yourself better each day.

Practice more gratitude, because you will never be given more until you can appreciate what you have now.

Lose that weight, and eat healthier. You can do it, but you gotta put down the cookie, sis.

Learn to go through the storm and stop trying to go around it. Life and hard times fall on everyone, but tough times build strong people. Remember, he will never put more on you than you can bear. You got this.

Enjoy your last year in California and really get everything you can from it. Everything happens for a reason so figure out how this place is necessary to getting you to where you need to be.

Network, network, and network. There are a bunch of opportunities to showcase yourself. Stop being afraid to show off your strengths and ask for help.

Fear Less. Don’t overthink it, and don’t consider the, “what happens if this doesn’t work?” Keep Philippians 4:13 in mind at all times, and know that you really can do ANYTHING.

And last but not least, know that you are magic and someone out there needs your gift, so stop being afraid to share it. This is your year to shine baby girl so give it all you got.

This is your year to level up!!! I look forward to whats to come for you!!!

With Love from yours truly,

Ciegi La’Priest
