Friend Makin Mondays, finally catching up

Thank you guys from the messages from my last post. I do think that I can focus on everything I've done wrong but start doing something better today. I'm actually still doing some medical stuff, test, mamograms, etc and I think this IS the first step on being a better healthier me.

My Mom-ster and Dad are arriving this weekend, part to see my brother, another part because the parasite that is my older former Sis is trying to ruin my Parents yet again. I don't want to do a whole post on negative stuff, but suffice to say we all have toxic people in our lives, I'm just lucky I cut her off years ago, My Mom and Dad just can't, they don't give up.

So for this week's FMM

FMM: A Letter To My Future Self

Dear Future Self,

I hope you are now on a healthier path, not only with eating but also taking care of yourself, remember that if you don't take of yourself first you can't take care of others.( I mean, seriously, take care of that body, I'm going to need it, ya' know?) I'm glad that you are focusing more on how you feel and not a number on the scale or a clothes tag. I'm dreaming of you waking up early in the morning and going for a run 'cause now this is your thing, and coming home to make breakfast in that dreamy white kitchen we've always talked about. I imagine by now you probably went crazy and had another child, is it a girl? are you freaked out? Don't you worry, you will do great regardless. I can see you now, all of you dressed up for Halloween and having a blast.

I'm sure by now you have become a stronger person, not letting people use you, still finding a balance and not getting confused between kindness and weakness. You know by now that the people that are meant to be in your life are still there.

How's the Hubs? is he healthy too? I'm sure he has done well also and you are probably returning back from that trip to Europe you guys wanted to go. I bet you guys had tons of fun there. I think I wonder the most is if you moved south like you wanted to or opted for the NY option. I'm hoping that whatever decision you made, you are still at home taking care of the kiddos and the pets, enjoying each day to the fullest and knowing how amazing this life you live is.

I know that you are happy, because even back now you where very happy, very loved and a very special woman full of potential. I hope the most that you haven't lost your sense of humor, your child like attitude and the faith you always had in the world and the people around you. I can't wait to be there and see what the world has come to.

Younger self

I hope our boot collection has grown a bit!

Now it’s your turn…Don’t forget to come back and link up!
