What I would Say to My 16-Year-Old Self

[Sunrise or sunset] (LOC)

Where there is hope, there is life. I would give this hope for the future to my younger self. I would talk in generalities, but encourage myself to expect better things in the future. I would say, “Do not fear for the future. You will marry someone who can see who and what you are despite your outward appearance. You will have children. You will go through a time of insecurity and despair, but will come out on the other side a stronger and more healthy person. You will gain self-confidence and realize and fulfill your talents. You will return to school and gain self-affirmation. You will also become an expert in designing and decorating wedding cakes. You will seek and return to God after spending some time with Jesus Christ in intense fellowship.As a result, you will live in peace, despite your daily circumstances, and learn to live in prayer. Do not fear change and growth, but eagerly embrace your destiny.”

About estherlou

My husband and I married in 1970. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother to 5. I am a retired wedding cake decorator. I like watching Netflix on the Wii. I am catching up on all of the old tv shows I missed when they were on prime time! Right now though, I am reading and writing blogs, watching tv, making jewelry and rosaries, selling in my Etsy store and playing solitaire. I am home bound and add in my physical therapy exercises to my daily routine. I will blog about my progress or anything that catches my attention at that moment. See you around and thanks for stopping by!
