Letter to My 2009 Self

December 30, 2010

I’ve seen a lot of bloggers doing this now, so I’m jumping on the bandwagon this time and following in suit. Here’s a letter to myself of 2009.

Dear 2009 Self,

You have no clue what God has in store for you. You will be tested and tried so much this year, but in the end you’ll realize how much that it’s needed. There will be great ups and some downs, but try not to focus on the disappointments that happen, they only last a season. They say that hindsight is 20/20, and while you won’t be able to fully realize the truth of this statement until after you’ve succeeded overcoming the present circumstances, it’s best to take it at face value and not look too deep into it.

Focus on the challenges of today, with a little foresight and then face those head on. Don’t worry about the worries of tomorrow, for they will come in due time. You have an amazing support system between friends and family; and despite present thoughts, your true friends will always be saying similar things when giving you advice, if their advice doesn’t align with your thoughts or what many others are saying then ignore it, don’t go with it.

Short and sweet, here’s the point: You’re stronger than you think. God is there, He hasn’t left you (and won’t, EVER). Look to family and friends, reach out to them. They really care about you. Keep doing what you’re doing and following your desires. God will bless that if it’s in accordance to His will.

The new you,

Does anyone have any suggestions for new articles? Is there something you’ve been waiting for a blog to cover, but it hasn’t shown up yet? The best way to have a topic written about (or more in depth) is to share it. Leave me a comment with topic suggestions if you want to see an article written about it.
