Ever thought about what you would write to yourself looking back? As I’ve reflected on the past decade, there’s a few things that stand out. And no way the 20-year-old me would listen 🙃 but I wrote one anyway.
Dear 20-year-old me,
If I told you everything that is going to happen to you in the next 10 years you wouldn’t believe it. The way you think your future is heading, is going to change. You won’t go to vet school, but you will get a masters. You will have some of the biggest heart breaks and biggest blessings in the next decade.
That guy you’re dating. Ya you’ll marry him. And you two will walk through what feels like fire together. You’ll fight. You’ll lose touch. But you will come back to each other. You’ll learn to fight for each other. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
You’ll get married, have kids, but your career won’t look the way you currently picture it. It will change a few times. And you’ll learn to adapt. You’ll learn more than you ever dreamed about human nutrition and health. Your health will struggle. You’ll have a few surgeries.
You will lose your identity, but don’t worry, you’ll remember who you are again. You’ll lose faith in old systems and find healing in new systems.
You’ll lean into God so hard at time you can hear him breath. You’ll scream at him so hard you cry. You’ll ignore him. But He’ll always be there waiting for you.
You’ll love. You’ll stress. The stress will almost kill you at times. And right at the end of your 20s you’ll finally realize you must handle stress better and start making changes.
Truth be told your 20s are going to be the hardest decade yet. But you’ll make it. You’ll change. You’ll become stronger.
Here’s to the next decade. The best is yet to come. ❤️❤️
As I've grown in my journey as an entrepreneur, mom, gardener, and livestock owner, I struggled to find a planner that met my needs and kept me organized. So I MADE MY OWN. You can take a look at it on the link blow and buy it on amazon below
Don't want the whole calendar part? I got you! I pulled the gardening and animal care pages out and put them in a book all their own.
