A Letter of Advice

Dear You/Me,

I feel the need to write you/me (okay I'm not very good at this 3rd person thing) a letter of advice because I see you/me heading down that slippery slope of sleepless nights and heavy thoughts.

There is no need to create things to worry about by analyzing every little detail of your life over and over again until everything is a confusing mess. You don't need to constantly be going over all the old stuff just because there is currently no crazy, mind blowing catastrophe going on in your life. It's okay. Sometimes life is uneventful and it's totally cool.

Also, there is no need to try to predict every little thing that is going to happen in the future. Whatever happens next will catch you off guard anyways and you will be just as unprepared. When are you going to realize that you are not in control? Just let never know you might be pleasantly surprised.

I think you have too much time on your hands and need to get out of the house. Maybe finding a job would be a good idea. Why can't you just figure out what you want to do? Even third graders know what they want to do. You need to get off your behind and find a job or at least a project soon before the long and dreary winter comes. The last thing we need is the winter blues.

Good luck.

You/Me...better known as The Crazy Lady

P.S. I've been reading your blog and I see a common have control issues and a problem with over analyzing things. Fix it. You'll be happy...happier.


  1. I think your letter to yourself is totally going to help you : ) I have a good feeling about it : ) Good luck!

  2. What great advice. I need to take it too.

  3. Cute post! If only we could take our own advice. :-) Love your blog design! Wow! Who did it?

  4. Delightful post. It's true that we probably know ourselves better than anyone else. Too bad that doesn't always help us to solve our problems.

    And hey, it's sometimes a difficult thing to know what one wants to be when one grows up. Maybe volunteering at a local charity would fill some of your time and help to give you some ideas.

  5. Love it! Now why can't I remember that? xoxo

  6. are you talking to me?

  8. Love this post!

    Love your blog BTW. I'm going to be a new follower!

    Stopping by from Mama Kat's :)

  9. I see myself in a way too. At least by the end you figured it out. lol, Cute post!

  10. Dear You/Me...better known as The Crazy Lady:

    I love how you tell Laura (and me, and pretty much everyone else with these issues!) to "Fix It" but do not give her advice as to HOW. Do you not think that if she knew how, she would have by now? A little empathy, eh? Tough love works, but throw us a bone, yeah?

    Love and kisses,
    Sassy B

  11. "Whatever happens next will catch you off guard anyways and you will be just as unprepared."

    Isn't that the truth. Really like your journal format.

  12. i think i need to write myself a letter as well - good idea!

  13. I seriously could have written this exact same letter to myself! We are one in the same and sometimes it's a sad, sad story!


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
