Prompt 8

There will be an agreement in whatever variety of actions, so they be each honest and natural in their hour. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

What would you say to the person you were five years ago? What will you say to the person you’ll be in five years?

Five years ago was 2006. I’d tell my 33-year-old self to not sign the mortgage. The long-term damage to her credit is not worth her family’s short-term security. Her live-in boyfriend with whom she traveled the world is also short-term. Her self-esteem is not worth the utter heartbreak in the end. 

Five years from now, it’ll be 2016. I’d tell my 44-year-old self you did good. You married the man of your dreams, run a successful business you’re passionate about, and work with people you love. You live in home that clutter-free. Your parents will see you and your husband have children who are beautiful inside and out. #Trust30
