Dear Past Me,
You have really big trust issues and low self-confidence. An English teacher in high school told you that you were a good writer. I wish you had believed them. I wish you would have considered college, thought of it as a haven instead of a continuation of your crappy high school years. If you had even told one person what you wanted maybe your life would have been different. 

Dear Future Me,
Congratulations on all of your success! You ROCK! I just knew you could do it. Glad to hear about all of your books being published and readers around the globe enjoying your words. I even heard there may be a movie deal! It's amazing. I hope you enjoy every moment. 

Dear Present Me,
Get off your lazy writing ass and finish what you started.


  1. That is awesome... Mine would be close to that.

    But I didn’t have a confidence problem; I was to cool for school, reading or even caring about learning—especially English.

    But we are who we are because of what we were then… so no looking back, full steam ahead.

  2. That may be one of those guy vs. girl things. I dwell.

    Thanks for coming by today.

  3. thats awesome!
    follow your dreams!
    inspiring =)

  4. I Heart you! Your posts are always so honest. I love that. xoxo

  5. Dear Present HMG,

    You are an awesome person! Your life is so chock full of stuff - wife stuff, mother stuff, friend stuff, firehouse stuff, school stuff, writer stuff - I don't know how you handle everything. Keep plugging along - you WILL get a movie deal!

    BTW - my friend who turned 60 a couple weeks ago JUST graduated from college. She is awesome too!

    Love you!

  6. Tara - Thank you! I'm soooo trying to stay optimistic!

    Liz - That means so much! I HEART YOU TOO!!! Thanks for sticking with me.

    K. - No one loves me like you do! I'm only trying to be as cool as you! I have a lot to live up to!
