Talking To My Sixteen Year Old Self

Sassy at 16

Honey, you don’t know it now but your life is going to be awesome. Quit worrying about everything and just take life as it comes.

Dream big, big dreams because all the dreams that you dreamed have already come true. See? If you had dreamed bigger and better dreams, you might be a famous writer today. Remember that book you started last year? Yep, that one. If you had faith in your abilities, you would have already been on book signing tours many years ago.

One thing that I am very pleased about is that you had children early in life. What a great thing you did. You grew up with your sons. They loved having a a young mom. You played ball with them, took them places, and just had a great time. Plus, you were a rocking mom but still managed to teach them all the right things to be great adults in life.

Now, they are grown with children of their own and you are still young enough to really get a kick out of life. You will learn to love yourself without conditions. Your self confidence will be awesome. I know you don’t believe this now but it is true. Oh, and you will find happiness living alone. Yep, hard to believe isn’t it? Don’t worry darling. You are so much brighter, prettier, aware and braver than you think.

When your day comes to get out in this world, just grab hold and down let go because honey, it is going to be one heck of a ride.

I love you baby more than you will ever know.

    Another person who had children early my friend. It was an excellent idea wasn’t it?

    It seems to me that having children late in life has been fashionable only for maybe the last twenty years. I need to check the facts on that.

    With you all the way. We had children youngish, young by todays standards. Now we have grown up kids about to go off and we still have a little bit of life left in us.

    Thank you my dear sweet friend.

    I feel sorry for any woman who has children late in life. They will never have a life of ease when they are older. Having my sons early was such a joy. I really did enjoy them…well, the teenage years were tough sometimes. 🙂

    I’m so glad for you Bren!

    And having kids young is an excellent idea, I see all these 40ish mothers, they’ll have fun when the kids become teenagers and the parents pushing 50+.
