A pearl from Heather:

Dear Heather at 22 –

Please remember to take a little time for yourself in life and feel good about it; doing so is not selfish. It is important to not work yourself ragged at a job that you know is not for you. You are missing out on life happening around you. Take the time to listen to what your friends are saying to you. You will come to realize that one of your dear friends needs you now more than ever and you need to take time to cherish the moments that you have with her, as well as others. Do not take friendships for granted; for you never know when someone will be taken from you. Take the time to visit friends and family whenever possible or take a road trip or airplane ride to see those close to your heart. It will ease some of the pain and regret you will feel later in life.

Heather, at 26
