Dear 40 Something Year Old Emelia

In an effort to never reveal my age we will pretend that 10 years from now I will be forty...something. It's true, I won't be 50 something, so I'm sticking within my correct age bracket.

What would I tell myself ten years from now? This seems to be more difficult for me to do rather than looking back on any mistakes I've made, hurdles I have overcome, or great moments I've relished in.

Dear Emelia,

I hope that you have slowed down to enjoy life and quit being so hard on yourself. Days will come and go, and time is something we cannot control. You are at the age where things will happen quicker than ever. Take some moments and enjoy every little bit of life. You do deserve it, no matter what you think.

You have been trying to figure out this thing called life lately. You wonder if you should be doing more with your career. You are trying to figure out the right time to have kids. You are balancing being a stepmom, planning a wedding, and other huge things in your life. You will figure it out. You always do with the right people in your corner. Keep fighting and be strong.

You are craving the desire to do more. Do more for others. You are struggling with the fact that there are not always enough hours in the day. Maybe by this time your days are filled with doing for others. You have always had big dreams and hopes for yourself and everyone around you. Inspire them. Stay positive and creative.

There is more to life than needing new nail polish, losing weight, and constantly being busy. You operate on busy, but just take some time and relax. It does not make you makes you human.

Breathe. Cherish. Enjoy. Love.

Keep on keepin on woman,

Your 30 something year old self

What would you tell yourself 10 years from now?
