Double tagged! I'm it!

Wow! the 300th post is looming and there's been so much I've wanted to say but because the 300th post will be a celebration one I've had to pull back on the bloggin' reigns until we get to that one! Stay tuned for it - it's coming next! I've got a fun GIVEAWAY and special project tutorial just for you!

This past week I was double tagged by a Wendy and Emily. Wendy tagged me to share a series of things about myself in 4's. I got that tag back in August from another blogger and as I looked over the list I realized nothing had really changed. Here's the list. I hope this is not cheating. ;) Thanks for the tag Wendy!

Emily tagged me with a challenge! One that I almost shyed away from BUT.............. I did it anyway. Here's the assignment:

Link to the person who tagged you: Emily

Imagine you could send a letter back in time to yourself, when you were 13 years old, what would you write to yourself? (yikes!!!)

Tag someone else! I'm going to tag my cousin ! tee hee hee!

Ok here goes!

To Megan,

*sigh* where do I begin. The teenage years are going to be rough but fun too! Don’t start worrying now, I know you too well. There’s so much you are finding out about yourself and others and where you fit into all of it. I know you feel like you are so different than others yet the same with them too. Hold your head high and just be yourself – the self you know way down deep. Continue to be friendly to those around you and reach out to everyone. You’d be surprised actually how many people admire you and watch what you do that you aren’t aware of. You have so many gifts and talents still to discover and I promise you will surprise yourself one day. Keep following your dreams tucked away inside and do the things you love to do!

Switching gears from the emotional side of things, DON’T let that counselor sway you out of talking that pottery class! I know it will be hard but he and your Dad will hash it out later and you will always wish you had but feel like it’s too late to try now. DO take a photography class. It’s something you’ve always loved, you know that, but don’t let the feelings of being not good enough as the other students stop you. If you don’t, you’ll end up hyper ventilating on your way to a class at a university when you are 29 years old while your husband and kids are at home. You’ll love it then, I promise, but you will wish you hadn’t waited so long. Oh! And take a dance class now! Try to convince your mom to squeeze it into the budget for a weekly class. You’ll thank me later!

I know there are so many things you love so go after all of them! Remember your standards, you never had a hard time doing that but I just thought I’d throw that in there at the end for good measure.


whew!!! it was sort of fun to reflect waaaaay back then ;) and bit emotional too! Have a great weekend! see you next week for the 300th celebration!

Megan, that was awesome! A lot of advice to our 13-year-old selves seems to be taking those chances we missed the first time around. Good advice for our 30-something selves as well! (Well, my 30-something self!)
