Sunday Scribblings – Dear Past Me – Dear Future Me

Filed under: sunday scribblings — ~Kathryn~ @ 12:38 pm

For Sunday SCribblings this week

Dear Kathryn,

Do you remember your school days? I know you don’ t very well, because you’ve told me how you were too busy being worried about what other people thought, how big you were (geez to be that size again !!), and how ‘not popular’ you were. You worried so much about these things – that you missed some of the best years of your life, you could have had friends that would still be with you today, you could have gone on and finished senior high and maybe made different choices (not that the choices you made later were bad ones – just may have been different options back).  I wish you could have seen it back then.

And then of course you left home at 16 and decided to ‘play house’. Whatever were you thinking ? just because your mum and dad split up, it didn’t mean they didn’t want you around, and you know that and I guess just used it as an excuse in some ways. Your innocence was lost way to early, and again, things may have been different. (I reiterate here that things now are great – and there are no regrets – but sometimes there is the ‘what if ….’ factor)

I’d also like to remind you about not getting too close to people you work with, stay as colleagues and keep it separate from your friends, you’ve already seen what can happen here and how it turned your life around. So be careful and don’t let anyone hurt you like that again.

Other than that – you’ve done pretty well …

Keep it up

Love ~Kathryn~

Dear Kathryn

you look great having lost that 20 kilos, i nearly didn’t recognise you, and more than that, you look so fit and healthy, must be so good on your heart.

I love the new house too, I know it’s smaller than what you have, but you can upkeep it so much easier now I bet … and less clutter … so awesome.

I heard that you went to America for a year, that must have been great to have that goal come true. And I saw you on that game show … you were so funny. Did you enjoy your visit to England to see your daughter, I bet she was thrilled to have you there.

I believe you danced at the festival at Tamworth, I know that one has been on your goals list for a while, I hear it went really well and you looked like you’d been doing it for years.

Well, you keep on enjoying life, sounds like things are going good.
Just stick to your goals … and keep believing that they will come true and nothing will stop you

take care

  2. To end with PS. I LOVE YOU!-Wow!
    The roller coaster through those years was well written.
    Goals of coming to America- well come on!
    I enjoyed your post…
    PS. I left at 16 years also when parents got a divorse.
    Small world…

  3. I do like to see you looking forward with optimism and the certainty that things will get so much better, and you will achieve your aims! As an adult ‘me’, you have realised that our destiny is in our hands, and depends not on how much we worry about what people think, but on how we behave and deal with what life sends us. It can take a long time to get to that stage, can’t it?
