Online Journal: Journal 11
April 26 - 30
Directions: Write a letter to the "you" of 10 years ago; don't tell that "you" what the future holds, but give that "you" advice about life and people, and how to conduct him- or herself.
After you write your journal entry, post it in ONLINE JOURNAL, and then "talk" to at least one other person about his or her journal entry. Submit this assignment in ATS by 11:59 PM on Friday.
P.S. Consider saving your letter for your child, or giving it your child, if your child is old enough to read and understand the letter. If you do not have a child, consider giving this letter to a young friend or relative who may benefit from the wisdom in the letter.Online Journal: Journal 11
I know you may not believe this, but you are beautiful inside and out. Never let anyone or anything make you feel differently. No one is perfect, but guess what? No one is YOU either! You can't compare yourself to others, just be the best you that you can be. You have a lot to offer the world, but you have to believe in yourself when no one else does and stay focused. Although you know more than most of the kids your age, you still have a lot to learn as we all do.Don't be afraid of what you are capable of. Don't run from success. I know the world of dating is exciting at the tender age of 12, but take your time when it comes to boys. They mature a lot slower than us, so it may be better to wait a while before you get into anything too serious. I know you've been talking to your mom about being home schooled because you want to pursue your career in music and entertainment, but I think you should wait. I've heard that business is really tough, especially when you're a kid. You are extremely talented, but you are an excellent student as well. I think your dream will still be there after you have completed all of your schooling.
Me and you are a lot a like.You are very strong, but yet so sensitive. Be careful of who you let in to your heart. I know you love to please people, but understand that not all people have kind hearts. Continue on the path that you're on. I think that you know what you're doing. Continue to grow and reflect as you always have.I don't know it all, but I do know you are special. No matter what anyone tells you or how often you find yourself being misunderstood, do not change for anyone. I know you believe you can adapt to anyone and any situation, but stay true to yourself...always.
Love, Jhene :)
