A Letter To Future Me

Dear Future Me,

Ten years have gone by since I wrote this letter. I wish I could talk to you in person right now. I wish you could tell me what's on the the other side of ten years.

Am I married?

Have I pursued my goals?

Am I still sticking to my healthy lifestyle and did I ever end up at my goal weight?

Am I still running?

Where does Brenn end up going to school? 

Does he end up chasing his dream of becoming a lawyer and ending up in politics?

Oh my goodness, so many questions. So much I want to know.

 I look back to the past ten years and I see so much change in my life. Ten years ago, I was a young single parent and I was pretty unhappy with life. I had Brenn. I had a good job. But, even at that young age I was unhappy with myself as a person.

I hope when you look back at me, you see a person who's grown stronger spiritually, mentally, and physically. I hope you are proud of the person you've become.

I hope you've had the opportunity to know what it means to have a man committed to you long term.

I hope you're encouraging others to pursue their goals, whatever they may be.

I hope you're taking every moment to enjoy the life, family, and friends God has so graciously given you.

And, if this letter so happens to find you in a valley, know that you've been there before and you will eventually be able to climb that mountain once again.

I look forward to the journey, Jennifer. See you in ten years.

Sincerely,
The Past Jennifer
