Rumya Misquitta, Home Chef and AUKERA Woman, writes a letter to her younger self.

As I sit here, pen in hand, reflecting upon the journey we have traversed, I am filled with a surge of emotions. I am compelled to reach out to you, my precious diamond, to offer guidance, love, and support. You may not realize it yet, but you possess a brilliance that shines with immeasurable beauty. 

In the depths of your soul, there exists a radiant light—a light that is uniquely yours. You are a diamond, my dear, forged under the immense pressure of life's challenges, and yet you have emerged with an unbreakable spirit. Your strength, resilience, and unwavering determination have carried you through the darkest of times, shaping you into the remarkable individual you are today. 

As I reflect upon our shared journey, I want to offer you a piece of advice that I have come to understand with the wisdom of experience: Always make choices that make your heart happy and bring you a sense of completeness. Trust the yearnings of your soul, for they are whispers from the universe, guiding you toward your true purpose and fulfilment. 

It is so easy to get caught up in the expectations and judgments of others. But remember, my dear, that your happiness and well-being are of paramount importance. Your heart holds the key to your authentic self, and it knows the path that will lead you to a life filled with joy and contentment. 

Embrace the passions that ignite your spirit, for they are the compass that will guide you towards your true calling. Trust your instincts and have faith in your abilities. Never let fear or self-doubt dim the brilliance that resides within you. You are capable of extraordinary things, my dear diamond, and your light has the power to inspire and illuminate the world around you. 

In the pursuit of your dreams, you may encounter obstacles and setbacks. But remember, these are merely steppingstones along your path to growth and self-discovery. Embrace each challenge as an opportunity to learn and evolve. Be gentle with yourself and embrace the wisdom that comes from both successes and failures. 

Surround yourself with those who uplift and support you, for their love will nurture and nourish your spirit. Seek out friendships that are built upon trust, authenticity, and mutual respect. These connections will be the pillars of strength that carry you through the highs and lows of life. 

Never forget the importance of self-love and self-care. Treat yourself with kindness and compassion, for you are deserving of all the love in the world. Take the time to nurture your mind, body, and soul. Listen to the whispers of your heart, and honour the desires that dwell within you. 

My dear younger self, know that I am here for you, now and always. I am your biggest supporter, your confidant, and your guiding light. Together, we will navigate the intricacies of life's journey, celebrating your triumphs and weathering the storms. You are never alone. 

Remember, my precious diamond, that you are inherently worthy of love, happiness, and fulfillment. Let your heart be your compass, and may your choices always be guided by what brings you true joy and a sense of completeness. Embrace the brilliance that lies within you, and let it shine upon the world. 

With all my love, admiration, and power to choose 

Rumya Misquitta. I am a woman. I choose me.
