An open letter to my younger self ……

Dear 17 year old Jennifer,

I know you don’t know it right now but you are beautiful! You are smart

You do NOT get told that enoughπŸ˜” and that won’t change anytime soon.  You are going to face some pretty heavy things in your life and you are going to want to give up but I want you to know that you go through all those things for a reason. Be strong. Be courageous. Be who YOU want to be!

When you want to dye your hair…..dont do it! Not only does every colour you try look stupid….your hair dies when you turn 30 and its white 🀧

Eat whatever you want!! It doesn’t matter in the end….your butt is already gigantic…might as well get used to itπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Have a little less sex…..its overrated ! When you become a mom it’s all down hill from there….🀣

Don’t worry about what people think of you…heres a little secret(the ones you think are judging you end up screwing up too!πŸ˜‰) 

You have a big mouth sometimes so you might want to stop that….it gets you into some big trouble 😐

Don’t get so wound up about everything.  It’s give you wrinkles at 28😣 

Those times you have thought about writing should be acted on…..turns out it’s very therapeutic for you πŸ€—

Love more. Don’t be so angry all the time. You take things too seriously. Not EVERYONE is out to get you. You WILL find true love and happiness one day. Believe in yourself! Love yourself! Believe in God….he is watching out for you. It may not seem like it now but life is good to you. It just takes you a really,  really long time to realize itπŸ˜‚ 


Keep your chin up….you have people that love you and will stick by you through everything…

Love your 35 year old self

Jennifer β€πŸ’œ

  1. Hi Jen,
    You write really well! I enjoyed reading this post and appreciate the challenges you faced between 17 and now.
    I think if your 17 year old could reply she’d say “Thanks for the opportunity to blog!”
    I think what you are doing is really amazing! Keep it up!
