So this morning on the way to work... a very slow trip because Christian was driving, he apparently was in a Brad Paisley mood and one of his song choices was Letter to Me. Which got me to thinking...So here's my letter to me at 17.
Don't doubt yourself, quit skipping school and don't hang out with Amy so much, she just gets you in trouble! Don't leave your backpack in Troy's truck or just turn in your research paper in early! Pay a little more attention in Photography, it turns out to be a pretty cool class! Stay at OHS and go to Senior Prom and everything else there is to do that year.
Go to church more often and hang out a little more with Grandma and Grandpa. Also don't be so hard on Shane! Let him be the pest he wants to be and hug him anyway! Don't take the boys and heartbreak so hard, you'll find true love when you're older and it will be great! I promise!
Keep wearing your boots and jeans, smile more often at your friends and even more at the girls you don't like! Go a little easy on the eye makeup and remember to wear sunscreen everyday.
Your life turns out great, even with the speed bumps that are coming up. Keep smiling and always trust that God has your back and that he will pick you up when you fall down.
And just in case you've never heard the song, here's the video!
