Victoria Beckham Wrote a Letter to Her 18 y/o Self & It Will Make You Emotional
Life is full of surprises and it keeps surprising us throughout the journey no matter what way we choose to go and what all manner of course we take. It’s quite spicy to judge life because it is very different in ways and we just can’t get used to the struggles and keep cribbing rather than understanding the fact that if we may go on with dedication we may live a happy life soon.
Dedicating this piece of writing to the most beautiful lady I’ve ever seen, I am writing for none other than Victoria Beckham. She’s that person I am so inspired with due to the phases she faced and yet have come out of it so gracefully and prominently.
Victoria Beckham wrote a very emotional letter to her 18-year-old self of the time she was struggling which has been added in British Vogue. Have a look through and you’d be amazed to see how this person has come up as a beautiful lady.
Victoria Beckham writes:
“I know you are struggling right now. You are not the prettiest, or the thinnest, or the best at dancing at the Laine Theatre Arts College. You have never properly fitted in; although you are sharing your Surrey school digs with really nice girls. You have bad acne. You think the Principal has put you at the back of the end-of-year show (in a humiliatingly bright purple Lycra leotard) because you are too plump to go at the front. (This may or may not be true.)
In the next part she writes about Beckham:
“Learn more about football, especially the offside rule,” she tells herself, referring to her husband’s former career. “And yes, love at first sight does exist. It will happen to you in the Manchester United players’ lounge – although you will get a little drunk, so exact details are hazy,” Posh adds, disclosing the details of the couple’s first meeting.
While the other football players stand at the bar drinking with their mates, you will see David standing aside with his family. (He’s not even in the first team at this stage – you are the famous one.) And he has such a cute smile. You, too, are close to your family, and you will think how similar he feels to you. He’s going to ask for your number. (He still has the London-to-Manchester plane ticket on which you wrote it.)”
Here she writes about her fashion:
You are going to have so much fun with your clothes – PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair,” the multi-British Fashion Award winner recalls. “It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous. You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. But I look back at you and smile. It will add interest to your life to go from one extreme to another. I love the fact that you will feel free to express yourself.”
Fashion will take on added stature one day, but try not to be stifled by it. You will learn, as you mature, to swap heels for Stan Smith trainers, mini dresses for crisp white shirts. And you will never be one of those people who just roll out of bed.” – Victoria Beckham
In all these lines it’s pretty clear how insecure she was in her life before meeting David but when she soon realized there’s something actually like “Love at first site” she changed her entire thinking to the whole new level.
It is important for us to believe that we are capable of good life, and if things are not going well one day soon they’ll be. Never back down and never feel suffocated with your small little world because everyone’s life have got a whole new undisclosed chapter filled with an adventure which will be activated soon when the time goes right.
