Ten Years Ago

Today’s blog challenge topic is, “10 years ago, I was probably ____.”

me today

Ten years ago, I was probably thinking I had wrinkles on my face. To me ten years ago I say, “Oh, just you wait.”

Ten years ago, I was probably spending far too much time straightening the top of my hair. To me ten years ago I say, “OH MY GOSH JUST STOP IT AND LET IT GO CURLY ALL OVER!”

Ten years ago, I was probably wondering what my future would hold.  To me ten years ago I say, “You are going to be hit by a car and will suffer every day after that accident. You will see more doctors than you care to think about. And there will be no fix for your back. But you are going to push through it and fight it with everything you have. And while you hear others around you complaining about their back issues and how they have to stop all activities, you will push through your pain and go to the gym to keep your muscles as strong as they can be. Damn, girl… you are going to ROCK.”

Ten years ago, I was probably wondering what it would be like to be ten years older. To me ten years ago I say, “First of all, you should have used moisturizer every-single-day. You are going to toss every penny you have in the wishing well until you have no more to toss. Your knees are going to blow, your back will be horrible from the accident and you are going to have Frankenstein lines around your mouth. You won’t look at yourself in the mirror anymore because you can’t stand what you see. But when you look INSIDE of yourself you are going to be proud of the strong woman you are. And that is what matters the most.”

Ten years ago, I was probably wondering what my daughter would be like in ten years. To me ten years ago I say, “Your daughter is going to grow in to a beautiful, giving, funny and warm hearted young woman who will keep a good head on her shoulders when it really matters the most.”

Ten years ago, I was probably worrying about my two boys who had so many ups and downs in school. To me ten years ago I say, “One is going to find his passion in cooking, work as hard as he can work and save every penny. The other is going to major in PHYSICS in college and will work a part time job on top of that. Both will be loyal to you, will stand up for you and will take care of you. You raised some amazing young men.”

And the best is yet to come.  (…. one day GRANDCHILDREN!)
