Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to.
Hello me….lets have coffee and then you can go through this letter that I am leaving you. Why spoil our coffee date!
You are going to be 40 soon. So be ready for the following
Your hormones are going to leave the building,so welcome the hot flashes of menopause.
There are going to be terrible mood swings,so much so you will be called mad.
Beware. Try and keep your sanity. Try and keep away depression.
Mom will actually lose her mind, all the more reason to be sane.
Sleep will be a thing of the past. Insomnia will rule your life.
You are actually going to face the midlife crisis.
You will soon forget what it means to be in love and therefore enjoy till it lasts.
Personally you may be facing all of this ,but in your career there is going to be all smiles.
A newfound respect and a better salary awaits you.
Children will be off your back as regards their studies, but new problems surface. They shall face a lot of love affairs and heartbreaks. So,you have to be present for them.
The husband will be better than before. He will become more of a brother than a lover. That means no late night and early morning sexcapades.
You shall start to blog, and that will help you make a lot of friends from all over the world. That will fill your life with happiness.
So dear, prepare yourself for this rollercoaster of a ride…
Ah yes,you shall lose Snowy our baby, our dog…that shall be the worst phase.
Be brave .You will come out of it unscathed…wiser and more mature.
And ,believe me it is better to be older, so be excited to be at my age.
All the best.
