Dear future Pauline,
It’s 19:55pm on the tenth day of 2017, October. You’re heading home after a rather hot day. Work was good. You’re listening to Goo Goo Dolls and loving it.
You’re in your early thirties and you’re going to ask yourself questions more often than not. Questions like, if I made different choices in life will I be here in this moment?
And if I chose different, would it be a better moment or good or best?
Would I be a better parent?
A better friend?
You’re going to wonder why people never follow script 😂😂💦.
But one thing that will quiet your busy mind is the fact that you’ll be grateful for what you have:
And you’ll find that that list of gratitude will always grow.
You will work hard to keep healthy habits.
You’ll cherish the people who matter to you and you will take care of them wholeheartedly.
Many things will break your heart but you will rise above because of your ability to take the lessons and learn from them.
You will try and find positivity wherever it exists.
You will be guarded but open to those people who show you that they’re worthy. You will break.
You will be broken.
You will laugh.
You will love.
You will sing.
You will dance.
You will embrace the days as they come. Because mastering the art of loving yourself wasn’t an easy path.
And with each new chapter that life will present to you, you will know that you’re the author. You hold the pen.
You will aim to write a story that will be engraved in many hearts.
The bad news is that time flies. The good news is, I’m the pilot!!
It’s 20:10pm and I feel good having written. I’m almost reaching home. The commute wasn’t that bad. It’s a good evening.
Let’s see what the next moment brings.
