Letters from the Future

I have quite a bit I'd like to tell this girl (other than the name of a good eye brow waxer and hair stylist).

There's so much she doesn't know. There's so much she'll fret over that isn't worth the energy. There's so much she'll miss because of unnecessary fear.

I'd tell her to spend more time enjoying the little moments. I'd tell her there are some people she should spend more time with and others who don't deserve even a minute.

I have so much I'd like to tell her, but I can't.

What will I want to tell this woman in twenty years?

The brunette, not the blonde. The blonde is already brilliant.

Oooh, what a great thought! Will check back in 20 years to see what you'd say to that beautiful brunette!

I don't know, that brunette seems to have her shit together.

But I remember that brunette. And I always thought you were one of the wiser ones. No, really. You always seemed to have your crap together. I envied that about you.

Something I think about ALL THE TIME. I always want to go back and say, "what are you afraid of?? Take some chances." I'd also tell myself that white tights are never appropriate past the age of seven.
