Letter to my younger self

Dear Gemma,

You have so many exciting things ahead of you! You will have ups and downs but you will get through it and be okay.

I wish I could say that it’s going to be plain sailing but the reality is it’s not. You are going to have dark times and down days but these are what is going to make you stronger and push you to achieve anything you set your mind too.

Don’t spend your time with people who want you to act a certain way, find people who love you for you and if people don’t see how great you truly are then they aren’t worth your time at all. Do what makes you happy and if you aren’t happy change it, you are in control and remember you are never going to let anyone else down you need to live for you and not other people.
Make the most of being a kid, you will miss it when you grow up (Although you will still act like a complete lunatic most of the time!) Just embrace your craziness and remember it is okay to be different, just be that weird wacky girl I know you want to be!

There are going to be times when you don’t know what the hell you are doing, you still don’t have an idea! But you will get by and make the right decisions for you, don’t let anyone influence you.

You will learn in life that you can’t please everyone, please don’t change yourself to fit in you are better than that and you will find amazing friends who love you. You are going to go through stages in life that you look back on a think “Why the hell did I do that” and maybe look at pictures with that god damn awful hairstyle but trust me you will find *some* sort of fashion sense!

You have a lot to look forward to but enjoy the now and enjoy being a young kid, you have your whole life to grow up so don’t go wishing it away. If you want to go dancing around the street.. do it! Keep up your photography and all the other things you love!

Keep going kiddo you are doing an amazing job!
