Dear Little Jackie,
You have a zest for life that you must hold onto and worship. You have a smile of light and you must continue to light up the world. Believe in yourself more, trust your instincts, don't be afraid to take up space.
You are smarter than you think you are. Being good at something doesn't mean you don't mess up or fail, in fact you usually mess up and fail a lot before succeeding. Continue to appreciate your family. There will be insecurities, loneliness, tears but there will also be confidence, friendships, smiles and laughs along the way.
You will go through storms and come out with a glorious rainbow.
You will meet many people throughout your life and determine ones that serve you and others that are toxic. You will try new activities, new fashion trends, new styles, new hairdos, haircuts, and even hair colors! You will see new places, try new foods and meals. You will meet people in your life for you to serve and some to serve you, but the best ones are those when you serve each other.
You will grow your relationship with God and at times it will have fall outs but God understands and he will find you. Never be afraid to keep trying new things. Be a leader, follow and create your own path. At times time will fly and others it will feel like it's sitting still. Live in the good and bad moments, think of the yin and yang symbol and know that you need good and bad you need black and white and you need to "Live in the rainbow".
No Retreat No Surrender. JR
