Blogtober 2014, Day 8: Letter to myself in 10 years

A few months ago, I wrote a letter to 17 year old me, which can be found here. What prompted the letter I wrote, was the song Brad Paisley sings called "Letter to me", all about what present him would tell past him. It's a great song, very catchy and heart warming. Ultimately, the song inspired me to reflect and remind myself that all over blonde is not my best look, and to stay laughing about life.

Today's Blogtober topic encourages a letter of a similar nature, but with projections for my future self. So here goes...

Dear 39 year old Megan,
Don't jump! It's only 40!! Kidding. Hopefully you still have your appreciation for aging and remember that getting older is a privilege denied to far too many.

So future self, I hope this letter finds you well, loved, and appreciative. And my God, still brunette. I hope you've sold your second or third book, or we're at least in the final stages of revision. I hope this blog space is full of even more stories and reflective of trials and successes equally.

I hope you have run a half marathon without needing resuscitation, and own a few pairs of Manolos for your well deserving feet. And maybe some vintage Chanel, straight from the Vogue closet, that you were privileged to acquire from a tour through the offices, after publishing your first amazing book. Because in your fantasy world, older, delusional Meggie, that's what happens. God love ya!

I hope you're gracious, kind, and still funny. Don't EVER stop laughing! Red faced, can't breathe and all. If there is one thing 29 year old you has come to realize, it's that life truly gets funnier with age, experience, and dare I say: wisdom.

Keep trying for what you want and always fight for what grants you happiness. I hope you still enjoy meditation and shopping; binge watching tv shows with Hunter Bear; and brunch with your same girlfriends. Wear sunscreen and moisturizer like it's gold because it is, and remain in touch with your cousins. All of them.

Never stop meowing, accessorizing, or loving Dirty Dancing and Criminal Minds just the same.

And long life the PepperRoni sisters!

Until we meet again, in approximately ten years,
M

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,
M

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
