"Letter To Me"

Happy Monday! (or Tuesday, since it's pretty late!)

I hope you are all doing well, and had a fantastic weekend.  I got to spend some time with some great friends over the last couple of weeks and I feel truly blessed in that area of my life.  

I have been struggling a little bit with other things recently.  Life seems to be catching up with me, and I've been feeling out of control.  

For those of you who know me... control is not something I care to lose.  

In the car today, I heard a song that I have loved for a long time.  It came at just the perfect moment, to help me put things in perspective.  Yes, things may be frustrating now, and I may feel like I don't have control of this situation, but everything happens for a reason... and I do believe that with all of my heart.  Sometimes I just have to remind myself =)  When things are not certain and life seems confusing, just remember that you will get through it.  One day, you'll look back and see what you learned from this, and you'll appreciate the struggle for what it taught you.  

I will get past this, and so will you.  =)

"If I could write a letter to me
And send it back in time to myself at 17
First I'd prove it's me by saying look under your bed
There's a Skoal can and a Playboy no one else would know you hid
And then I'd say I know its tough
When you break up after seven months
And yeah I know you really liked her and it just don't seem fair
All I can say is pain like that is fast and it's rare

And oh you got so much going for you going right
But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night
She wasn't right for you
And still you feel like there's a knife sticking out of your back
And you're wondering if you'll survive
You'll make it through this and you'll see
You're still around to write this letter to me

At the stop sign at Tomlinson and Eighth
Always stop completely don't just tap your brakes
And when you get a date with Bridgett make sure the tank is full
On second thought forget it that one turns out kinda cool
Each and every time you have a fight
Just assume you're wrong and daddy is right
And you should really thank Mrs. Bringman
She spend so much extra time
It's like she sees the diamond underneath
And she's polishing you 'til you shine

And oh you got so much going for you going right
But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night
Tonight's the bonfire rally
But you're staying home instead because if you fail Algebra
Mom and dad will kill you dead
Trust me you'll squeak by and get a C
And you're still around to write this letter to me

You've got so much up ahead
You'll make new friends
You should see your kids and wife
And I'd end up saying have no fear
These are nowhere near the best years of your life

I guess I'll see you in the mirror
When you're a grown man
P.S. "go hug Aunt Rita every chance you can"

And oh you got so much going for you going right
But I know at 17 it's hard to see past Friday night
I wish you'd study Spanish
I wish you'd take a typing class
I wish you wouldn't worry, let it be
I'd say have a little faith and you'll see

If I could write a letter to me
To me"

Day 9: Think of a time when you thought the "world was ending" (you know we've all been there!) and then think of where you are today.  You got through it right... and you will now! =) 

Love True-
