Dear Past Me,
Holy Crap girl, you have so much great stuff in your future, I hardly know where to begin. Oh, no. I don't want to ruin the surprises for you. You'll see it all soon enough, in a flash really.
Look in the mirror from time to time and try to see what everyone else sees. You're a cute girl with a big heart. You have made some giant miscalculations and you surely have made some poor choices, but it won't be the last time you do that. You will make many more before your time here is up. You need only to learn from those mistakes and most importantly ~ forgive yourself and try to do better.
My best and most imperative advice to you, my youth, is enjoy these days. Live your youth with all the vigor and vitality you can muster because one day, those will be lessened. One day you will wish you could run a few miles just to clear your head. Don't light that first cigarette. Keep those notebooks you write in day in and day out. They will be keepsakes one day.
Never give up. On anything you have a passion about.
You're gonna be someone someday, so don't leave too many skeletons for the media to dig up!
Dear Future Me,
I have no clue where you are now, but I am willing to bet you are still writing and still hoping to be discovered by some big publisher. Oh, how exciting if that has already happened! I hope you are someone!
I don't know if Roomy is still with you or not, but I can assure you that he loved you very much in your past. I can assure you that you finally got the love thing right. If he hasn't left you, you are really lucky because you sure gave him plenty of reasons over the years to walk out that door. If he's still there, lay this damn letter down and go give him a big ole hug.
The trials and pains and blessings of your past are all responsible for who you are today, whoever that is. You are responsible for where you are. The decisions and choices you made in your own past brought you to where you now stand and I pray it is a good, harmonious and peaceful place. I hope you are still creatively living your days and that your mind has survived the years.
I pray you are surrounded by love and that your children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren are all a loving part of your everyday life.
I also hope you do not outlive your good health. I hope you die quietly in your sleep after a full day of whatever makes you smile.
I hope you are still ready for that day as you were back here in my time.
