If I could go back in time…I would write a letter to my younger self.
After all, my younger self truly could be schooled and educated a bit in many things.
So in this letter, I will tell my insecure teen and early twenties self a few things.
The major theme I would share with her is that you will find happier ever after.
See all the frogs in the pond were indeed worth it to find your Prince Charming or Mr. Right.
I swear he truly exists and not just in fairy tales. No one is perfect, but there is someone out there that is pretty close and he will truly love you for you, because let’s face it you aren’t perfect either.
You will finally wise up at the ripe old age of 26 and decide once and for all that you will find a person worthwhile of loving and respecting you for you.
You will find this love in a place you never thought imaginable online (Match.com) and this is a person you most likely ran into many times as you only live 5 minutes away from each other. You went to neighboring high schools and even attended the same state university for your undergraduate work, as well as frequented a lot of the same bars and such.

Trust in yourself and know that in the end, all the bad dates and relationships you have endured will be worth it in the end.
Life may not be a bowl of cherries everyday in the future and you will always have your moments, but try to know the overall picture is indeed a master piece and you are blessed for it. Keep in mind that life is really what you make of it.
So even though, fairy tales only exist in Disney movies, you will get your own version. Have no fear about that with a loving, faithful and honest husband.
Plus, you will get to be the mom to two adorable and amazing little girls, too (even if they drive you crazy with messes like this!)
Again you will hit bumps and potholes along the way, but the end result is they are definitely filled in and much smoother driving or sailing in your thirties for sure.
And by the way, 30 isn’t old neither is 36 years old nor 37 years old or even 38 years old!
What would you tell yourself?
