“I am trying to figure out…how to be who I want to be.”

Postcard 19

Thirty of my former high-school students — who are now making their ways out in the world — volunteered to participate in ink + sky’s first Postcard Project. I am grateful for their honesty, their candor, and their willingness to take a risk.

By disclosing what they are trying to figure out, these young men and women are revealing a part of their inner selves. This courageous decision requires the willingness to be vulnerable, which is one of the most powerful acts that a person can demonstrate.

Your thoughtful comments are welcomed below. The author of this postcard will value your affirmations and kindness. Thank you.

  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts! You are so right about using your past self and experiences, and adjusting your present day self to learn from previous mistakes. Knowing what you can control and change, and accepting the things you simply cannot are important elements in becoming an adult. You have a lot of wisdom, and I know it will continue to guide you in life and help you grow into the person you want to be. You will learn all of these from experience, so please do enjoy the ride along the way!
