A Letter to Me (from the future...dun dun dun)

You know how people always write about what they would tell themselves when they were younger about what they know now (does that sentence make ANY sense?).  You know like I could write a letter to my 12 year old self telling me not to worry about middle school and the fact that everyone called me Bus Driver because it really wasn't going to be a big deal in the future?  Well I'm going to do that now, except I'm writing to myself now from my future self - you're tripping out right now aren't you?!  I know its hard to follow but go with me here...

Dear 25 year old self,

You are so lucky.

Read that sentence again. 

You are so lucky.

You are young, you are pretty stable for your age, you have really awesome family and friends, you get to travel and have fun and enjoy your time.  Guess what you're not even in school any more and you should definitely be enjoying that.  Are you?  Are you enjoying the fact that you don't have to write papers or go to class on saturdays anymore because you should be.  Because dude, I don't have to tell you how not fun THAT was.

Also self, you need to CALM THE F DOWN.  Why in the world do you worry so much?  You're not starving to death or homeless or gravely ill or even in jeopardy of any of those things occurring in the near future.  So chill why don't ya?!  The universe and the big guy upstairs are taking care of you.  So just chillax already.

Self, stop nit picking.  You are great just the way you are.  Enjoy the body you have and your "quirky" personality.  Enjoy your family and friends while they are close and warm and here.  Be nice to your SP, because you really lucked out there, lets not lie.  Enjoy your life now.  Live it.  That doesn't mean stop planning for the future (because god knows you are a freakish planner/worrier) but loosen up every once in a while and enjoy the moment.

Little Self this much I know is true.  Everything WILL BE OK.

What you are failing to realize is that it already is...

Much love,

Your future self.
