Turning 18 is a life changing experience. You are now officially and legally treated as an adult. You are now responsible for yourself and the world around you. Freedom, comes responsibilities. You will soon make a lot of decisions of your own. Some will be the right choices, and others will be wrong.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. In every mistake you made, you will learn and discover more about yourself, your limits, your capabilities and what you can and can’t do. Just remember…you have potential of great things.
Dream big. See the world. Travel. Try new things. Try new foods (even the spiciest one’s, just don’t cry and dance like Rena). Never allow anyone to make you feel less of a person through their words or actions. You, and you alone, are in control of your emotions and well-being. Don’t worry about what other people think… just be your best.
Choose your battles. Life is too short to be arguing with someone all the time about everything. This goes for friends and family as well as any future romantic relationships. Be empathetic and put yourself in the other person’s shoes and try to see things from their perspective. You will be rewarded in ways that you have yet to understand.
Above all else, remember you are loved. No matter where you go in life or who you grow up to be, we will always be here, standing behind you…encouraging you to live your dreams and live life to the fullest.
We are very proud of you.
We love you…Happy 18th Birthday!!! #happybirthday #march22 #18thbirthday #loveletterfrommom
