Dear Past Me/Future Me

"Today I'm hosting for BlogFEST 2012! And I have a prompt for those of you participating in the challenge. Here is the prompt: Dear Past/Future Me

The rules are pretty simple--take this prompt and post your blog today. Be sure to link back to this post to be eligible for the giveaway at the end of the challenge. You can link up the url to your post with other BlogFEST participants on the Facebook Page located here."


Dear Past Me:

Be a little less of a troublemaker. Being a teenager is hard enough, don't make it any harder. Just let life happen without making it any worse because you will end up regretting it later on. You doing the things that you are doing will only make life harder. Take it easier on mom. She made her bed and she laid in it, don't hate her for it the rest of her life, it isn't completely her fault that things happened they way they did. Learn to let go of things sooner, rather than later.

Kiss your great-grandmother more often, one day you will miss them and won't know how to handle it, but don't worry. What they say is true, time does heal and it does get easier. Don't take her for granted.

Live, Laugh and Love more often then hate. Hate is something that is learned, while love is something that is taught. Love a little more, hate a little less. When you get older, you won't feel as heartless for it. Learn to get along with people, everyone. Being anti-social will only get you so far, before you start to hate yourself for it.

When life starts knocking you down, instead of letting it stress you out, learn to adjust.

Just LET GO... and Live life to the fullest, the isolation you so desire is something you will regret later on..

Be free!


Dear Future Me:

I hope you learned to take life one day at a time versus all that damn planning we used to do. Sometimes it is good to be sponataneous and just learn to let go and be free. I hope the kids grew up to be what we had hoped for, happy and healthy. I hope we found our real love, you know, the guy that completes us. And by now, I hope we found ourself.  I really hope that we found our place in life, right where we belong and we are everything that we had hoped to be. Not just for us, but for the kids as well. When life does knocks us down, let's make sure we breathe and learn to adjust, because that is what helps us sleep at night! The wonders of letting go will get us far. I hope we didn't go overboard with money problems and we got through it. Life was hard for us, and I think we were destined to be miserable, so I hope through all the therapy we went through we learned to work through it all and actually LIVE our life. I really hope we do.

...Until we meet again!
