smell the roses

so jessica at lovely little things has a "task" every week that makes you stop and pay attention to the little things. this is the first time i have participated in this and i'm pretty excited. this weeks thing was to  write a letter for you to read in five years.

dear me,

i really hope you have found more stability and peace lately. i know 18-22 was really stressful, and it seemed like it was never ending. i hope you are doing something you really enjoy. it may not always be something mom and dad agree with, but as long as you are happy, that's what matters. i hope by now you have found the man of your dreams. if it's jd, awesome. if it's not, that's okay too. keep doing what makes you happy, and keep discovering who you are. no matter where you are, keep finding a church to be connected in, and make sure you are connected. i know after high school it's been harder to let others in and get connected, but you know how vital it is. keep going to small group. even at 22, the girls from monday night are some of the best friend i have, besides christina and felicia. i have no doubt they are still a part of our lives. keep trying to be healthy. i hope you've kept running and added some more 5ks to our little list. most importantly though, keep loving Jesus and God, and keep loving yourself.

love ya, 22 year old me.

I'm so glad you linked up with Jess. She's a fantastic little lady. I love the letter you wrote to yourself. 18-22 is fun but rough time. So much will change for you in the years to come, and I'm sure it will all be fantastic!
