Dear us at seventeen, (Open Call. Open Salon)

Knock. Knock.
It’s me.
From many years in the future.  Crazy, huh?
Proof?  Of course we want proof.
MindiTheMagnificent.  Enough said.

I know, we aren’t even questioning why we find ourselves here.  We believe in this kind of thing.  Advice from our future selves.  Forewarning.  Reassurance.

It will take several years for us to believe this, but we are a pragmatic control freak.  While this serves us well, from time to time, it also is a cause for much heartache.  As much as we currently want to believe in fairy tales and all things mythological, it’s not part of our DNA.

We need to know this.  Believe in US.  Trust in US.  Love Us.

We don’t learn from advice.  We learn from experience, trial and error.  We will try on many different outfits in the coming years.  Searching for that perfect combination.  Keep doing it, but know that we  can choose what to wear.  We don’t have to wear what others think we should wear.  Believe, trust, love.

If advice was something we would listen to, I’d tell us to skip the “Yuppy, Double Income, Two Kids” attire.  We won’t listen, though.  We will try it on, find that it’s scratchy, constrictive and never feels right.  Shrug it off fast and move on.  

Love?  Tough one, we still don’t know anything about it.  Just know that it’s all around us.  Waiting.

There is one thing.  I won’t tell us when or what, but know that something will happen that will completely change us.  Forever.   This is not a stereotypical event, either.  It’s real and it’s huge.  Don’t know what comes of it, yet,  we are still knee deep in it.  Just remember that word above.  L-O-V-E

In the meantime, buy a journal.  Now.  Do not pass go, do not collect $200.  Then write, write, write.

We will discover The Beatles.  We will fall head over heels in love with them.  Don’t do it now, wait for it to happen.

Love, love, love,
Our well adjusted, crazy, chaotic and random self

      Looks like my first 3 years of college. Probably didn’t see that cimong Yeah, you may have started young but I was like Rookie of the Year on my catch up work. It was most definitely the best thing to happen to me when the University and I decided we should go on a break. Unfortunately it means I don’t have a shiny piece of white paper to hang on my wall. But I’m also not in the same place as the folks I ran with in that place, and seeing their lives now makes me very happy with the choices I made. I’m also now a big fan of August 1st for you, man. 7 years is awesome. Congratulations!

    On the advise of my dtcoor I only take 0.5 mg twice a day for anxiety. I also do meditation for about 1/2 hour a day. I do an hour if I can get it in. Breath in deep threw the nose for count of 5, then hold for 3 seconds, then release your breath threw the mouth another count of 5. Do this 3 times and relax. You can go to a book store and get meditation cd’s and books on this subject of Anxiety. Good luck. Again get Doctor advise on dosage.
