Dear Future Self: You Are Enough

I’ve always struggled with Imposter Syndrome and that is not a secret to anyone. I guess we all do, but I have learned that it’s not about the syndrome but rather what you do with those feelings and how you react when they hit you all at once.

To me, the feeling is even stronger when all my life I’ve have been told I am a strong independent woman. I know I am, I have proven to myself that I can face pretty much anything life throws my way but as I get older, the challenges come with more responsibilities and yes, that scares me. At 33 years old I am pretty much running marketing for the multicultural demographic for a Fortune 500 corporation. 


Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE my job but having this much to lose sometimes really makes me wonder if I am truly enough and if I will ever reach people’s expectations.

But I’ve also come to realize how important small self-care moments are. From treating skin with lots of love and pampering – because well, at 33 I pretty much have to if I want to keep feeling good at a later age! To taking time to really enjoy my husband and my dog and disconnect from technology. One of the lessons I have learned the hard way and I wish I had listened to my mom years ago has been how I protect my skin and what to do and not to do. I did however, after suffering from terrible acne, learned a proper skin routine that includes sun protection.

Lately I have been using the Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35 every day and now that spring has sprung in Minneapolis (finally!) and I walk to work every day, I love that I don’t have to worry about any sun damage to my skin because Olay got me! Feels super light, making it perfect even when I use make up.

So, dear future self: YOU ARE ENOUGH. Just trust your gut, stay humble and work hard the rest will follow. Oh and take care of your skin, because GIRL WE WANNA LOOK GOOD WHEN WE ARE OLDER! 

All the love,
