A letter to myself

This was originally supposed to be my post yesterday but SOMEONE hijacked my blog.

Since today is my birthday I thought I would write a letter to my much younger self.

Here it goes.

A letter to my 20 something self:

I thought you might want a little insight to how your life turns out. And I thought you could use a little well OK a whole lot of advice.

First thing…you are not fat. Quit telling your self that. Just keep riding that bike and don’t quit after the wreck. You can do get through it. You look great!

While you meet two guys and have a long term relationship with both, they are not the ones. Follow your instincts when those feelings start to crop up…RUN and don’t look back!

Take that college class you wanted to because you thought it would be fun. Don’t worry you won’t regret it.

When this guy with dreamy blue eyes asks you lunch, GO. Don’t put it off.

He turns out to be the one! You love him even if you don’t want to admit it to your self.

Try to stay in touch with Sherry from high school. You both will be so happy you reconnected and comment often to each how you wished it had happened sooner. The great thing is you picked up your friendship right where it left off.

Cherish the time with your grandparents, your visits will become precious memories.

Go to your high school reunion. Don’t worry that you thought of your self as a big goof, turns out several other girls thought the same thing about themselves. Who would have guessed.

You end up having a terrific life!

You have a great husband and kids that love you. A wonderful family that supports you.

So relax a little things might not have turned out as you thought but everything turns out great!


Love,
Your 40 something self.

And remember…life is like a roller coast you just have to hang on for the ride.
