Keke Palmer Letter To Her 40 Year Old Self;

Dear Lauren,

Knowing how we do, you are probably living a life completely different from the one I’m living now. I wonder how you look at 40 years old. Who am I kidding, you probably look just the same—you know Black don’t crack! But seriously, one thing about us is that we are always evolving. Knowing that we are not a finished product is something important to us at 23 years old, so I hope at 40 you are still finding new ways to express yourself. In fact, that’s what I’m working on now—building our identity capital so you can live your best life and express yourself to the fullest. 23 I want you to know that these times we’re having now are great, but everything passes, the good and the bad. Don’t hold on too tight to anything, especially youth. I hope you’re learning to not take things personally and transmute your sensitivity into opportunities to learn more about yourself. I hope you remember all the times that you thought you were going through the worst you could ever go through. And I also hope you remember that you always got through it. Make the best decisions you can and trust that God got you girl. Because you know He’s never led us astray. I love you. 

xoxo Keke

Life is not about everyone loving you, it's about you learning how to accept the fact that they won't. It's about them judging you and ridiculing you for simply being who you are and THEN you forgiving them for doing so. It's about taking all your hurt and allowing the knowledge of GOD(within self) HEAL YOU. It's about awakening to the fact that everyone in your life is meant to teach you something about YOU. It's about experiencing a multitude of emotions and experiences and embracing them all (especially the hard ones) that allows you to see God's grace. Humbling yourself enough to see the good that has always been there and because of that gratitude, seeing how you rise out of the ashes to embrace the light you have always known… before you allowed yourself to belong to others opinions of you! You don't belong to anyone and I'm here to share with you my journey on this path and the chains I have broken. We will rise together millennials and we will break all the societal curses that plagued our ancestors. Let's change our lives one step at a time 💖 #itsamindgame #youcanwin #stay+
