Dear Julia

 a letter to my younger self


Dear Julia,


Let me just start out by saying that some of the things I am going to tell you are going to suck, but you will be okay; even though the saying is stupid and I wish I didn't have to say this to you, "What doesn't kill you does make you stronger!"

Don't hate your body; it will do some amazing things.

Don't get married till you are in your late 30s because you won't know your worth before that and you will be taken advantage of.

Puberty is going to really suck and you will question your parenting and your sanity EVERY FRICKEN DAY!!!!

Don't be afraid. Whenever you have to make a decision, you should ask yourself what the worst possible outcome of the decision is, and if you can live with that, then there is no reason not to do it.

Like yourself even if you are an asshole sometimes.

Ninety percent of the time tell the truth, and always tell the truth when it is about stupid stuff;  it will save you so much time.

Keep educating yourself, because you will go back to school in your 30s and it will be tough to start all over.

Keep reading. It will help you in everything you do.

Love is not a romantic comedy so stop comparing your boyfriends to the leading men in these dumb-ass movies. There is no such thing as an unattached, millionaire playboy that will give up his ways for you; also if he has that much money, he is either a criminal or it's his daddy's money.

It's okay to like older men but you are going to marry a man only 4 years your senior, so get it out of your system.

Marriage is hard work and there will be times when you don't want it anymore and that's okay. Just keep working at it and don't give up without a fight.

Stop cutting your hair so short you look like an idiot, and for all that is holy: STOP DYING YOUR HAIR RED! YOU LOOK LIKE RONALD MCDONALD'S UGLY SISTER!!!

Don't forget to say, "I love you," but only if you mean it; don't just say it for the hell of it.

Your life will be an adventure, sometimes a boring adventure but an adventure none the less.

Your siblings are your squad so treat them accordingly, even if they constantly tell you that you look like Mom.

Always forgive but never forget. Your mama didn't raise no fool.

Talk to you later,
Julia
