Today, I am a woman of a certain age

And, I'm reminded of my birthday five years ago and am writing a letter to my younger self.

Dear Self on 10/3/05,

Chill out.

You will be grateful you didn't marry that guy.

You will meet The One.

You will not be at that job forever.

Your true friends will always be your friends.

The most important thing is family.  But, you already know that.

Life actually does go on and it doesn't mean you have to forget.

So, there you have it.  Chill out.


p.s. Sorry but your hangovers will only get worse.

Today, I am grateful ~
1/ That a lot can happen in a year
2/ and especially in five years
3/ That I didn't get this letter back then because I might have done something differently and then everything wouldn't have happened the way it did, the way it was supposed to happen.
