A Letter To Myself in 10 Years

Dear Greta, 

Well, how is life treating you? I have always had great expectations from you and my only hope is that you can live up to these, because we both know they are very important. 

My wish for you is that you have found your place in this world; that you have found a job you love and created the life you always dreamed of having. I hope you have found a husband who is as preppy as you are, and who adores you and accepts you for you and who encourages you to be a better version of yourself each and every day. I hope that you have fulfilled your life-long goal of being a mother to however many children that God has decided or will decide to bless you with. I hope that you have found your dream house and that you are surrounded by family and friends who love and support you in all you do. 

As far as college, you have been graduated for six years now, and I expect you to be living in accordance with what you strived to teach yourself and learn during your four years in university. You are fluent in Spanish, like you always dreamed, and you have a strong career and potential to accomplish wondrous things. Just because school is over doesn't mean that your education is over. It doesn't mean that you have to throw away everything you engrained in your mind, soul and heart. My guess is that your bank account is reminded every day of your college days, but try not to forget everything that you experienced, the good, the bad and the ugly. 

Stay true to yourself, stay strong in your faith and close to those who are most important to you. Remember that life is a beautiful thing and you have a purpose on this earth. Also remember that life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain. Stay classy.

Stay strong and believe in yourself.I am very proud of you.
