I’m writing a letter to myself, so I can look back at it five years from this date, and remind myself of the dreams and thoughts I have. Time flies you know, care to join in?
If you do do it (you rebel, you) hashtag me on The Girl Side Instagram or Facebook page! #GirlSideDare #SilviaDaresYou. I’d love to read the letter you wrote to yourself and give you my support!
I hope these years have given you wisdom. Whenever you’ve taken a leap, it’s either helped you be better or taught you a huge lesson. Did we go to Germany and Greece yet? I hope you took pictures and blogged about it if you did! As for the language, did you master German? Yes, you know some, but Hallo Wie geht’s is getting old!
Improv, did we finish all of the UCB classes? I hope so. If you did, I also expect you joined an improv troupe with a kick-ass name too!
Acting. Don’t limit yourself to comedy. Try and work in a drama. You are Latina, you Can. Do. Drama. I know you’re on the fence because you think you’re not ready or worthy of an agent yet. Although deep down, I believe that you can get if you just trust yourself a little more.
Oh, and don’t let your personal website go either. You love to write. Plus, you’ll look back at all of the great things you did, and felt. That’s also where you review books, movies, and lots of other cool things that people like you can relate to. Hopefully, it’s so good five years from now, that we can live off of it, hah!
I’ll leave you with this, take care of your health, family, and keep your standards high in both business and personal relationships. It can get lonesome sometimes, I know. You’ve let many people walk out of your life, but I’m confident that you are fair. So don’t think for one second that you deserve second best in anything. You. Matter.
In ending, try to embrace your achievements. Sometimes you move too fast, and forget to appreciate the fruits of all your hard work. Don’t be too hard on yourself; the world does that enough for you already. Keep going.
-Until the very end
