Prompt: Future self. Imagine yourself five years from now. What advice would you give your current self for the year ahead? (Bonus: Write a note to yourself 10 years ago. What would you tell your younger self?)
I haven’t been following along with reverb10 lately but I really wanted to write this post… I think I need it right now. Here it goes…
Dear Future Self,
I wanted to write you today to tell you that you rock! Your lifestyle has changed completly! You are going to go through alot of trying times in the next five years. Especially having 2 little boys. Always remember that all those frustrating, horribly annoying and seem to be unbearable moments will all be worth it when those boys look you in the eyes and say I love you mommy. On the days when you are frustrated about finances, remember that money won’t hug you back when you are old and gray. There is no better gift than children and you have been blessed with it twice. Also remember that even though you want to be working and making money, there is no harder job than raising a family (even if you dont get all the appreciation you deserve). You will do great! You wouldn’t be put in a situation you couldn’t handle! Rock it out like you always do and remember you can handle any challenge put in front of you!!
Your Younger Self
Dear Past Self,
You are a 16 year old girl working, going to school and on dance team. You are workin’ it out! I want to tell you that some things are going to happen in a few years. You have to stay strong! Remember that you will never be put through anything that won’t make you stronger! It’s also ok not to plan things out 100%… Go with the flow more… Things always end up working themselves out. Don’t stress! You are living life in a good way and ALWAYS appreciate what you have and don’t take anything for granted! You are a strong person and people rely on you. Remember that, it will help you through your road ahead.
