So I saw this post on a couple other peoples blogs and I thought it'd be a really fun idea. I encourage you all to do one as well.
Dear 15 year old self,
Alot is going to happen in the next 8 years. But you will never regret any of it. Your going to learn from your experiences, and allow them to help you grow. Life is so unexpected and you can never be ready for what is thrown at you.
Go to college right after high school. It sounds like a terrible idea right now but its even harder when your 23, married and trying to support yourself. Chase your passion of nursing.
When mom says its important to save money. DO IT.
Your going to graduate high school and barely ever speak to people you grew up with. It happens, its life. The important ones are going to be the ones who stay in your life no matter where you are. Even after high school, friends are going to come and go. Again, its the ones who stay that matter most. Dont take this personally.
In a few years your going to meet someone who is going to change your life forever. When you meet him, you wont know this is the person your going to spend your life with until about a year and a half later.
You will become an Army wife. Hold on tight. This will become one of the biggest challenges of your life. Yet it will also be very rewarding. You will be blessed with a strong relationship between yourself and your husband. He will deploy, more than once. But you'll be okay. It may not feel like it at the time but you will. God picked you to be a military spouse for a reason. Honor that.
You will also become a step mother once you marry your husband. This will take awhile to adjust to, but you'll come to terms and love her like your own. You'll have your time to have babies with your man. Just be patient.
After your first deployment you'll find yourself very unhealthy. You will realize this after a bit of time and you'll change yourself. This part of your life is important because you realize you want to help others get healthy and live healthy. And you'll be very proud.
Most of all, just love yourself. Your going to have many times where you dont love yourself. But save yourself the time and just love yourself unconditionally. You were given this life, feel blessed and own it. :)
Oh--and that gigantic tattoo on your side that your going to get in about 3 years..you could do without it.
Your 23 year old self.
