I am sure like me, there have been times when you have wondered what difference might have been made to your life, if your younger self had been gifted with the experience and knowledge you have accumulated over the years.
I invited several friends from the writing community to share their thoughts on this subject which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did.
This week newspaper and radio reporter, music promoter and hotelier Dorothy Grover-Read New Vintage Kitchen shares a letter she would write to her younger self.
I wish I knew then what I know now by Dorothy Grover-Read
Dear Teen Dorothy,
It has been 50 years, and I can’t believe how fast time has passed!
You are just starting out, full of hopes and dreams, the future a blank canvas. But there’s all those unknowns. What will I do? Where will I go? Will I be happy?
I know most days you feel like a square peg, not quite fitting in! You found yourself in a huge regional high school knowing virtually no one. Athletics, not you. Chorus, not quite. Drama, nope. Bookworm? Of course! The kids all seem to have their own cliques in place, with no admission.
