There’s something about watching the generation ahead of us. Staring at your mother as she applies makeup, listening to an older sibling on the phone to a boy/girlfriend, wishing we were in the year above and moving on to college or university.
Growth is a process and a beautiful journey in which every day and moment adds up to it. Daily we are growing and maturing, becoming more of a woman and in becoming that woman, our character is shaped by our journey to womanhood. So there is no need to rush to wear makeup, be in university, have a job or lose your virginity. None of these things actually make you an adult.
Be patient and allow yourself to blossom at the right time. Caterpillars become butterflies after a period of time because there is a season for everything. Babies become toddlers, seeds become flowers and trees. Growth is a process and the journey is very important because it greatly impacts the results of the process.
So today we want to encourage you to be patient. As a young girl with big dreams, it is normal to want to do this and that or become the woman of tomorrow, but please be patient. Enjoy where you are now; love your present because it is a gift.
Don’t worry, one day you will be that woman you desire and you will love it because you’ve learnt to love your present.
