A letter to my 25 year old self

Here's a letter I would have written to myself back when I was 25.

Dear Me,

Don't spend your energy worrying about things ... everything always turns out all right. Pay attention to your gut; it's rarely wrong.  Don't be upset or depressed when things are not perfect; life is a combination of good, bad, happy and sad days and experiences.  Don't be afraid to have an opinion or disagree with someone who has a different point of view; your voice counts.  Don't give up your values or principles for a man; the right man will love you just the way you are.  Don't lose yourself; laugh as loud as you want and be every bit of yourself as you are.  Don't sell yourself short; you won't always be the smartest, but you will work harder than anyone else.  Don't spend what you don't have; you will always have what you need.  Don't give up on love; you will find it much later in life and it will be worth the wait.  

Be present everyday and savor every moment, whether it is joyful or painful; there is a lesson in everything.  Everything happens for a reason.

Be kind, be generous, be grateful, be content, be happy.  You'll be just fine.


 You know that fear that you have about producing ugly children?  No worries, they all turn out to be gorgeous!
