This was a prompt for the writers workshop or will be this coming week but I really wanted to write about it. The topic is: If you could write a note to your younger self, what would you say in just two words. If I only had two words that I could use I think I would have them say:
I would chose these words because I was always in a rush to grow up and I wish now I would have just enjoyed being a child and not worried about growing up and how I wanted to be an adult. I find it funny now as adults everyone say’s not to rush growing up and enjoying being a child but we all know that every child wants to be an adult. I know when people told me to enjoying being a child I just laughed it off because being a kid seems to suck when you are younger. I wish I would have enjoyed more of the few good years of my childhood that I had before things changed again and this next phrase is something I wish I could tell my younger self:
Because I really needed to hear these words while I was in school and recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I still remember how hard it was to come to a realization that the MS was never going to go away and in fact it could get worse than it already is. It is a hard pill to swallow that at a such young age you have a disease that will never go away and you don’t know how it will end up affecting you.
What two words would you write to a younger you?
