A Letter to myself in 20 years
Dear 38 year old me. I hope in the last 20 years you've learned a lot about life. I hope you have learned to take time and "smell the roses", and not take life for granted. I hope you're proud of all you have accomplished. I hope in the last 20 years you've reflected on your life and are proud of everything you've done. I hope you hit all your goals thus far. I hope by now you are married to the man of your dreams. I hope your dreams of becoming a mom have come true and that you've proven the doctors wrong when they've said in the past, "you probably won't be able to have kids", "it will be bad for your health". I hope you are a successful woman, and living your life to the fullest. I hope you've dreamed bigger than you ever have, and hit ever goal you've ever set. Also I hope you've had many failures in your past, to help make you a stronger person. I hope your relationship with God has become closer, and that you have committed your whole life to him. I hope you are a woman of faith and character. As you sit back and reflect on your 38 years of life, I hope you think to yourself, "have I done good"? Have I helped as many people as i possibly can? have I given all that I can to the Lord, and to charities. Have I done good in the world. Am I proud of who I have become? Have I taken the best care of my health so I can be around for another 20 years? At the end of the day can you PROUDLY say to God, "I have committed myself to you, my whole life" and at the end of the day can you proudly say, "These 38 years of my life have been the most amazing time of my life", and at the end of the day I hope I thank God for every day he has blessed me with-and someday a long long time from now when you reach the golden arch in the sky, will God say to you "Well done my good and faithful servant".
