What advice would you give your younger self?

Throwback Thursday: If you could speak to your 30 year old self with the knowledge you have today – what would you say?

I would say:

You have such an amazing smile young lady. You should use it more at home and focus less on painting it on for the world. All that matters is right in front of you. You have an amazing husband who loves you unconditionally and genuinely lives to make you and your children happy. Don’t take his fun and carefree nature so seriously. It’s not that he doesn’t care about “real problems” – you see…. it’s that he has been chosen as your angel to teach you how to live. It breaks my heart to inform you that he will only live another 9 years, but I promise you that you will survive this tragedy and you will be stronger for it.

My hope is that you can enjoy this precious time with your family with the clarity that this is all so very temporary – and with the joy that you didn’t take one day for granted. And, if by chance you miss this lesson – it’s ok, forgive yourself when the time comes. It wasn’t your time to learn it.
