Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be”, and I have to agree! There’s nothing more satisfying that spending time with someone who pushes you to be the best version of yourself.
That’s the inspiration for this post today–I’ve surveyed the Twittersphere for tweets of encouragement that inspire me to be my best self, even when I don’t feel like it. As you navigate what can feel like 4 treacherous years of high school, hold onto these words of encouragement to keep your head up throughout the process, face challenges as they come your way, and grow into your best self. Good luck!
